U.S. History: 1877-present
The political, social, and economic status of the US faced a great depression from1877 to the early 20th century. During the year 1877, the United States experienced a period of reconstruction whereby Friedman, scallywags and carpetbaggers who redeemed the area from the black rule, formed Republican political coalition. They intimidated voters to secure the victory and also enhanced the power to compromise because they promised Hayes power only if the government cooperated in removing federal troops from their areas. As a result, several republicans vacated the south leading to a regression of economic and social growth.
In 1892, the Populist party was formed by the black and white farmers in order to secure power, but the party faded in 1896 with the exception of NC. This was accompanied by an era of post-reconstruction, which was associated with taxes. The end of 18th century Atlanta witnessed racial realism because segregation was endorsed. The Gilded age followed until 1890s. This period was marked by population and economic growth even though the era ended with the economic depression. Social Darwinism sprouted at the end of the 19th century in response to the immigration, innovation and the struggle for African American freedom because the principle of survival for the fittest was the justification factor for racial distinctions. The social gospel of the early 20th Century was devised by protestant movement, which aimed at addressing social problems, such as liquor, unions, crime, race, education and child labour. Issues of ethnic reforms and questions about social Darwinism were administered up to 1917. The war industries board was founded to regulate the buying of the World War I supplies and also in decreasing tension among people. Leaders passed laws which hindered prohibited citizens from voting according to their sex and democratic principles. The Espionage Act was formed to prohibit spying and the use of false statements which could impede the success of the military.World War II was very essential because it addressed anticommunism issues by catalysing revolution and suppressing criminal syndicates. In addition, the war promoted interaction with international communities.
The present development in social, political and economic fields in the US faced several challenges in the past. There is no doubt that the current political, social and economic fabric of the United States is a result of the various stages and transformations through which the country has endured in a test of time.
