US History II

During the Progressive Era in the United States, there were many changes happening. Some
were happening with the people in the United States, some with the people controlling the
United States, and some changes were just going on around both of them. This Era of time
for the United States helped them out a lot. They were tired of things going bad for
them. They wanted the "good 'ol times" back. They wanted to be happy again and they
would do anything to make this happen.

We had two new presidents during the Progressive Era in the United States. They both knew
that people of their country wanted to be happy. The people believed in the governments
ability to cure bad things. So the presidents came in and took over the country, starting
to control things more and more. This is what was making the people happy. Women also
started speaking out against the laws that were set against them. They started club
meetings. They wanted to the same rights as the men did. They also helped with he child
labor laws and with the minorities. They got everything under good condition for the
minorities. They also wanted prostitution cleared up on the streets. Women wouldn't have
a lot of rights that they have now, if it wasn't for the women in the Progressive Era.
