Farmers in Muckraking Expose

THE JUNGLE- Muckrakers are investigative journalists seeking to expose corruption and illegal practices in business. Capitalists didn't make things fair for farmers. They would want to raise prices for railroad shipping and would fight against the farmers alliance movement. The socialists helped to create the fair railroad rates and the interstate commerce commission (ICC). They made deals with farmers to make life fair. The industrial revolution helped out the farmers, and didn't help them out also. It created new farm machinery, so there was less human labor involved. The negative to that is that they had to buy the new machinery, and pay for the transportation of fertilization products.

Turn of the 20th Century

WASHINGTON D.C.- The US expanded its power and influence in Spain. At the turn of the 20th century, the United States had turned into a minor imperial power by fighting a war with Spain for Cuba and the Philippines and annexing Hawaii and plenty of other territories. The US was engaged in European affairs because of WWI. Isolationist feeling had spread across the country. Refusing the membership of being in the League of Nations, America turned inward once again. The prosperity of the 1920's and the great depression of the 1930's made Americas military strength take over. There was no preparation for thew war when the Japanese struck the U.S. fleet at pearl harbor in late 1941. The US had left WWI with the strongest economic power on earth, and its foreign policy changed a lot, taking the lead in founding the United Nations. It made a system of alliances with the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
