America in the 1880s-1920s

By:Alma Camacho


By the late 1880 s Industrialization in America started growing rapidly. Businesses started gaining more money and more power over people. New technology like the Bessemer Process which made it more easier for the mining people to work.


Immigration had a good and a bad side because some people would see it as new work opportunities during this time but others would see it as intruders into the country. Most immigrants accepted low wages of money for work in exchange. This made it possible for immigrants to built railroads which allowed more people to move to different places.
