Before the Industrial Revolution, products were made by hand at home. It required skilled labor. If you couldn’t produce your own yarn or cloth, you had to barter or trade with another family who could. Most people didn’t have the money to buy ready-made clothing. When it came to clothing, most people only had a few items of clothing. You don’t have closets or drawers full of clothing you never wear. When clothing got holes it was mended, when you grew out of it, it was given to your younger sibling.

Once upon a time to make cloth, it required a series of processes completed by different people who were highly skilled in a certain part of the process.

Podcast # 19: Second Great Awakening and the Reform Movements of the 1830s and 1840s

Before we continue to move along into the 1850s and the events that will lead up to The Civil War, it is important to rewind the clock a bit and discuss some social changes that helped to shape the history of The United States.

The first English Settlers were made up of English Dissenters. When talking about New England Colonies we are of course referring to The Pilgrims and Puritans.

Podcast # 20: Reform Movements of the 1830s and 1840s Part II

The most prestigious schools only admitted men. When women were employed in the few occupations that were deemed appropriate such as teaching for example, they were paid less than their male counterparts.

Podcast # 21: Events of the 1850s

The Women’s Suffrage movement

We have been building up to the Civil War for quite some time. Sectionalism, lack of national unity and the issue of the extension of slavery into new territories are at an all-time high. The events of the 1850s will make the Civil War all but inevitable.

After the Mexican American War ended in 1848, sectional tensions were at an all-time high. In 1849, The Whigs were victorious in electing their candidate Zachary Taylor as President.

Podcast # 23: The Life, Presidency and Assassination of Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln is one of our former presidents whose legacy has taken on a life of its own. He is remembered for a great many things. A log cabin, being honest, a rail splitter, a lawyer, a great orator, a former president, a great emancipator. In all of those descriptions, much of Abraham Lincoln is lost. He wasn’t always a supporter of emancipation; those views would evolve over the course of his lifetime. His views on racial equality are not what most people would expect them to be.

Podcast # 24: The Civil War – The Union vs. The Confederacy

The Civil was lasted from 1861-1865 and is the bloodiest war in American history. A war, that originally was thought would only last a few months.

The war not only divided the country between the North and South but family members who fought on opposing sides. Families with one brother fighting for the Union and another fighting for the Confederacy.

Podcast # 25: The Civil War Part II

A Political War vs a Moral War

At the start of the Civil war this was a war to preserve the Union. It was not at the outset a war to end slavery that wouldn’t happen until 1863 with the Emancipation Proclamation which we will talk more about.

Major Battles:

There were many battles during the civil war. It would be impossible to discuss all of them. Battles were fought in the southeast, in the deep south like Vicksburg and in the west in battles like Shiloh.

Podcast # 26: Reconstruction and the Presidency of Andrew Johnson


The time period of Reconstruction is from 1865-1877. The majority of the south was in ruins. There was so much that needed to be done Politically, Socially and Economically. Imagine looking at a large glass vase that has fallen and shattered into hundreds and thousands of pieces. Where do you begin? How do you put this back together in a way that it functions, can you repair it in a way where you can’t tell that it had been broken apart? 12 years wasn’t nearly enough time. Reconstruction ends not because the work they had set out to complete was finished.

Podcast # 27: Presidency of Ulysses S. Grant

The election of 1868 was important for a number of reasons. It was the first Presidential Election after the Civil War and it was the first Presidential election after Black males were given the right to vote. In addition, Mississippi, Texas and Virginia had not yet met all of the requirements to be readmitted into the Union, so they didn’t participate in the election. Incumbent President Andrew Johnson was fresh off of his Impeachment Trial and was not nominated by either party. The Republicans put up General Ulysses S. Grant (he had no political experience but remember...

Podcast # 28: Compromise of 1877 and the Life and Presidency of Rutherford B. Hayes

The Election of 1876 was one of the most controversial elections until the election of 2000 between Gore & George W. Bush and the most recent election of 2020 between Trump and Biden. In 1876, The Republican party who had been battered by scandal throughout Grant’s Presidency, put up Rutherford B. Hayes and the Democrats put up Samuel J. Tilden. Samuel J.

Podcast # 29: The Transcontinental Railroad

With the end of the Mexican –American War the United States gained a vast amount of territory and realized its goal of Manifest Destiny. The United States had gained control of the continent from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean. One time, the thought of settlers living west of the Mississippi where Native Americans had been forced to relocate was a foreign one. With the gaining of new territories and the desire for more land, more and more people moved west on what had once been designated as Indian Territory. Yet again, Natives who had already been relocated would see their lands taken away again, relocated again

Podcast # 30: Impact on Native Americans

When we talk of the Transcontinental Railroad, we often discuss the positives. The sheer ingenuity of the railroad lines, how it benefited the US Economically, Socially and Politically. While it allowed some groups to grow and prosper, it led to the destruction of another, Native Americans.

The Government had already forcibly relocated most Native American groups west of the Mississippi River. The tribes living along the Great Plains were severely impacted by Westward Expansion and the building of the Transcontinental Railroad.

Podcast #31: Booker T. Washington vs. WEB Dubois’ views on the improvement of conditions for Black Americans

For Black Americans in the post-civil war era, while some rights had been given, through the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments, the black codes that had been passed in the southern states drastically limited those rights. Furthering the progress and protecting the rights of Black Americans was left up to Black Americans. When Reconstruction ended in 1877 well before it should have ended, the Federal Government abandoned Black America. The Federal Government would not protect the rights granted in the late 1860s and 1870s until the 1960s.

Podcast #32: History of Money in The United States

General Currency as an opening:

What is money? By definition, it's something of value. But over the last 10,000 years, the material form that money has taken has changed considerably—from cattle and cowrie shells to today's electronic currency.

At first there was a barter system - people exchanged resources or services for mutual benefit. In fact, this is still going on today. In my advertising business, I have bartered services for other items or services I needed. I had a complete security installed along with cameras, thermostats, etc for a website and some digital services.

Podcast #33: Plessy V. Ferguson and the emergence of Segregation in the United States

“It was not, then, race and culture calling out of the South in 1876; it was property and privilege, shrieking to its own kind, and privilege and property heard and recognized the voice of its own.”
― W.E.B. Du Bois, Black Reconstruction in America 1860-1880

Jim Crow laws were named after a song “Jump Jim Crow” which was performed by whites in blackface. These were common depictions in vaudeville shows throughout the country. In the post Reconstruction Era, Jim Crow Laws restricted the rights provided to Black Americans from the 13th, 14th and 15th amendments.

Podcast #34: California Gold Rush of 1849


The California Gold Rush began on January 24, 1848, when gold was found by James W. Marshall at Sutter's Mill in Coloma, California. The news of gold brought approximately 300,000 people to California from the rest of the United States and abroad.

Fun fact - The Gold Rush was the largest mass migration in U.S. history. We will get into the numbers later on!

Earlier discoveries

Podcast #35: Immigration and the growth of cities Part 1

Millions of Immigrants came to the United States between 1870 and 1900. The majority of these immigrants came mostly from Northern European countries like England, Ireland and Germany. These groups are often referred to as Old Immigrants. New Immigrants consisted of groups from Southern and Eastern Europe. They spoke different languages and had different religions. The influx of these new groups of people eventually gave way to Anti-Immigrant sentiments and Nativist policies that led to the change of Immigration policies in the 1920s.

Podcast # 37: The Gilded Age and the Rise of Big Business Part 1

The term Gilded Age was coined by Mark Twain and was used to describe the United States from the post civil war era to the end of the 19th century or the end of the 1800s. In 1870, Mark Twain wrote “What is the chief end of man… to get rich! In what way? Dishonestly of we can; honestly if we must”. I always tried to hammer home to my students what that term Gilded meant.

His father, Julius is a man of great wealth and influence and is a partner in a European Financial company.

Podcast # 39: The Presidencies of James A. Garfield and Chester Arthur

James Garfield was President for 4 months. He is not a President that if often talked about, but considering the brief length of his Presidency, that makes sense. James Abram Garfield was born in Ohio in 1831. Like many Presidents before him, he was born to a poor family who lived in a Log Cabin. His father died when he was young and the family struggled. He didn’t have much formal schooling until his teenage years where he excelled at school.

The Progressive Era takes place from roughly 1890-1920. This is a big chunk of time in American History where see unprecedented growth and changes to American society.

It is during this time period where we see a variety of reforms or changes being made at the local, state and federal levels of government. Progressives came from a variety of backgrounds and socioeconomic classes within society.

Podcast # 47: Podcast Progressive Era 2

Child Labor in the United States has a long history and still exists in many places around the globe. Child labor existed throughout the country. It’s certainly hard to picture today, but if we were to travel back in time and suddenly find ourselves in a New England Mill in the mid-1800s or on a family owned farm, it would be commonplace to see young children doing work that most adults would find difficult today. Conditions were such that once a child was physically able to work,

Upton Sinclair was a writer and a socialist. He spent a number of weeks undercover at a Chicago meat packing plant. His book, The Jungle was meant to shed light on the terrible working conditions.

Podcast #49: 16th and 17th Amendments

16th Amendment

Alright before we get into the meat and potatoes of the first of the 4 Progressive Era Amendments, I think it’s important to discuss taxes and what they are and why the Government collects them.

Podcast # 58: Woodrow Wilson Part 1

Woodrow Wilson is a man and President whose policies and beliefs leave him with a troubled legacy. He fits into the category of a former President who did some great things and he also did some terrible things. Uncomfortable conversations and discussing the full picture of historical figures is essential. I think it is safe to say that his early life and upbringing helped to shape his ideals and beliefs which of course, when he became President of the United States, shaped his policies (Both domestic and foreign).

Podcast # 59: Woodrow Wilson Part 2

We talked at great length about Domestic Issues during his Presidency but Foreign Policy wise, there is a lot going on here. We are going to have two –three episodes on WWI. So we aren’t going to go into much detail on that in this episode.

During WWI which acted as a smoke screen for this next event, you have the Armenian Genocide taking place. April of 1915, the first major genocide of the 20th Century begins. Within the Ottoman Empire, which is mostly Muslim, you have a minority group of Armenian Christians. Armenians were seen as scapegoats for the Ottoman Empire’s losses during WWI.

Podcast # 61: WWI Part 1

World War I or as it was called at the time, The Great War, changed the world as people knew it. By the end of the war, many of the great empires had fallen. Russian Empire, Austrian-Hungarian Empire, Ottoman Empire.

Kaiser Wilhelm II told soldiers departing for the war, “You will be home before the leaves fall off the trees”. He couldn’t have been more wrong but he wasn’t alone in his thinking. Most of the great powers involved in the war didn’t anticipate the war to last very long.

Podcast # 62: WWI Part 2

30 nations attended the peace talks. Germany and other Central Powers not invited. Do understand while there are 30 countries present, they are not equal. You have countries that are considered "greater" powers and those that were "smaller" powers.

We typically hear of or speak of what was known as the "Big Four" (US, GB, France & Italy). There is no better proof of this than the seating chart that exists that shows where each country's representative sat at the peace talks.

Podcast # 63: The life and Presidency of Warren G Harding

When Warren G. Harding was running for President his campaign slogan was a “return to normalcy”. While Harding was one of the most popular presidents, he is widely considered one of the worst. We go into some debate on that at the end of the podcast, but will say for now, that perhaps he was more misunderstood.

World War One is over and now we need to go back to life. There was this need to go back to normal. To go back to the way things were before the whole world had seemed to stand on its head.
