American Cultural History: The 19th Century

In 1800, everyday life had changed little since the year 1000. Yet, by 1900 the Industrial Revolution had transformed the world's economy. The United States was still new and making its way to becoming a world power. Watch it happen as you browse your way through each decade. Then visit the suggested links for more information. Because we are librarians, we must point out that the best way to immerse oneself in a topic is to use both Internet and library books. Nothing like getting your hands on books! The smell alone is intoxicating! Our intention is to offer an overview of the century in a 'semi-essay' form - and to let the links we have chosen take users even further.
