Robert Chiles talked about labor and social unrest at the turn of the 20th century, as well as the reforms that tried to combat this discontent. He described the tension between corporations, workers, and the government over issues such as working conditions which lead to various strikes. He also spoke about how all levels of society sought to alleviate fears about the rapid societal changes of the Gilded Age by a return to the nature movement, as evidenced by the creation of urban parks. Mr. Chiles began his class with a brief example of music from the period and used slides during the lecture. close
