Digging Deeper Into the Underground Deathtraps
Children would go in to work to help support their families. They would crawl through narrow spaces which the older men could not clamber through. Young children were also lowered into deep, narrow wells to retrieve minerals. As they walked behind men who carried buckets or pushed carts full of ore, coal, and other minerals, their tasks were to pick up the natural resources that had fallen out of the buckets and place them back in their carriers. Having to do these tasks for such long hours caused the children to develop hunched backs.
Miners, both young and old, would emerge from the mines with black lung. They would be forced to leave once they began to cough black soot out of their lungs and into the air. The owners had no problems with the men and young boys developing black lung and leaving. They would replace them easily. Many of these men never made it past their fifties due to the infection that had developed in their lungs, and injuries that happened during the job. Working in these conditions was worthless for such a low wage. Mining was a job that paid, and many were willing to do anything for money due to the high percentage of unemployed citizens.
Power to the Women
Women hate to be discarded as some sort of rag doll or a cigarette butt. They're powerful with the burning flame that will soon spread and will ignite the lights of other's candles. Their courage, strength, hope, endurance, and dedication is sure to pass among those who only see women as weak and property to their husbands. Those who wish to see women fail in life are guaranteed disappointment once they get a kick out of what the women can do.

So Long, Lusitania
There's a secret behind the sinking of the Lusitania. The Germans had agreed to not torpedo any passenger ships. The Lusitania, however, was not a passenger ship. In fact, 173 tons of war munitions for Britain was found on board. If the munitions had not been placed, so many lives wouldn't have been lost. Though it is a tragedy, the Germans were only doing what they had agreed to. They did not sink a passenger ship, but a war ship.
Banjo Lesson shows the tradition of the youth learning from their elders. The image of the two Africans has no negativity towards them and helped give whites an insightful view of the life of African Americans. They're curious, leaders, guardians, teachers, and family. A young boy taking up an interest of his elders is natural. In response, the elders will teach the youth and pass tradition and skill on through the generations.

West Virginia (Gilded Age)
Delaware (Progressivism and Imperialism)
The construction of a canal that Congress had sought to build through Nicaragua has now been scheduled to be built across Panama. The canal will be known as the Panama Canal. Ships will shorten the 8000 mile journey around the tip of South America by cutting through the 48 mile long canal. The lowest toll is only 36¢. A journey from the Atlantic to the Pacific will only take a day to make.
Cutting through the land will be difficult and tiresome. The managers of the construction have purchased pounds of DuPont dynamite to help construct the Panama Canal. Construction of the canal will quicker and much more easier. Once the land is blown away, concrete will be used to build the walls of the canal. Locks will serve as doors that can rise a ship 85 feet above sea level and will gradually decrease the height as it gets closer exiting the canal. Without the help of DuPont dynamite, this construction would have taken years to establish and open for ships to pass through.
Kentucky (Roaring 20s)
Kentucky had gained prosperous fertile land for cotton, 300 residents. Many of the residents owned their own cotton gin and saw mills. This gain caused for Kentucky to prosper in the cotton industry. The abnormal bend of the river not only nourishes the Kentucky Peninsula, but the boarders of Mississippi and Tennessee as well.
