4000 factory workers of the Pullman company began a wildcat strike. They went on strike because the Pullman company laid off workers and lowered the workers wages. If it was significant because it stopped most of the railroads. I'm proud of this because the workers stood up to there bosses
People used to live in the country, until industrialization hit. They where forced to move into city's because they had to be close to there jobs. This led to people having to be more social because they live in close conditions. This also meant that different cultures were colliding.
The Naturalization act of 1906
The Naturalization act of 1906 signed by Theodore Roosevelt, required any immigrants that come into the country to learn English before they become a citizen. I am proud of this because without that act, it would be a lot more difficult now a days to talk to some one because they would probably be speaking a different language.
A movement to safe guard the natural beauty of the country. To protect some amounts of land from industrialization and to create some national parks. And some restrictions on cutting down and using all the natural resources of the U.S. to prolong the life of the natural resources at hand for later generations.
Big Stick Diplomacy
The famous quote "speak softly and carry a big stick" was told by Theodore Roosevelt. A foreign policy to influence other countries to have a peaceful outcome. To have a army at your back in times of diplomacy to make sure that things go smoothly.
The thought that america had the right to more than what it did. And used what ever it had at hand to influence other areas to better the progress of the american economy. And used economy as the driving factor for the most part. America use to be a very imperialistic country in other parts of the world.
One of the main causes for america to inter a war was due to the large amounts of yellow journalism in america. Yellow journalism is when journalist take things and put them way out of proportion in comparison to what they really are. And try to sway the public opinion to what they think should happen or to their view point.
