A prolific yet problematic time

The Gilded Age

Gilded Age

  • Part A: Define the word "gilded" and write a brief explanation of how this term applies to the Gilded Age era
  • Part B: Briefly explain the election of Grant and the "Bloody Shirt" campaign
  • Part C: Explain the corruption that existed during the Gilded Age... you must include the story of William "Boss" Tweed AND explain who Thomas Nast is (plus include images of his work)
  • Part D: Explain what occured in the Comrpomise of 1877

Each section must have images!

BOLD terms/names/events that you use. I expect to see specific information.

Corruption and the Compromise of 1877
