We’ll explore America’s tortured, nearly three-year journey to war.

Block 6 APUSH-Guest speaker on Thursday!

Read 1 or both of these excerpts from the historian coming in on Thursday.  If you prepare notes and ask questions in class, you will be allowed to turn in notes for enrichment. Anyone not in block 6 is also welcome to do this as well.

His name is Dr. Edward O’Donnell and he is an expert on Gilded Age history. The two excerpts are from his most recent book and focus on the reformer, Henry George. You read testimonies from Henry George on labor relations in class! He will discuss what caused the Gilded Age, its turmoil and changes; then he hopes to engage you in a discussion to compare and contrast today’s age and discuss whether or not we are in a second Gilded Age.
