Happy #BDCSmallBusinessWeek! . . Small Business Week is celebrated annually to celebrate entrepreneurship across Canada. This year #smallbusinessweek is recognized from October 15 - 21! . . #fastfact: Exporting is vital to Canada's economy. It is a driver of economic growth and is strongly correlated with real gross domestic product growth. Furthermore, exporting can provide a strategically important means of growing a firm by expanding its market beyond the confines of Canada's relatively small domestic market. Canada's continued commitment to establishing trade agreements reflects this importance. . . In 2013, Canada exported goods totalling $420 billion, of which $106 billion was exported by SMEs. More than 37,000 Canadian SMEs were active exporters of goods to a broad array of international destinations. While the majority (over 26,000) of these SMEs exported to only one country, a significant number exported to two and three to five countries (4,200 and 3,700 respectively). #toobig2ignore

Under Tweed every municipal contract included a bribe to pay to him and his chief Lieutenants. Though much maligned for its corruption Tammany Hall and William Tweed were effective in civic management. City bosses did provide key services needed by immigrant communities upon arrival. The political machines were very much in tune with their constituents. The ward bosses would have their finger on the pulse all the activities of their jurisdiction. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #bosstweed #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #efficiency #photography #tammanyhall #corruption #immigrants #wardbosses

William "Boss" Tweed circa 1870 City governments where operated by political machines at this time. These machines provided basic services for immigrant votes and enriched their leaders through municipal fraud. The most infamous of all urban political machines of the 19th century was the Tweed Ring of Tammany Hall. William Tweed or Boss Tweed ran the Democratic Party machine in the city and held a monopoly on patronage in New York City dispensing it as he saw fit. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #newyork #historynerd #education #corruption #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #nyc #socialchange #bosstweed #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #efficiency #photography #tammanyhall #newyorkcity

Pittsburgh in the 1880s The great Industrial cities were habitual framed by smoke plumes and many had skies that were yellowish-brown because of the amount pollutants. In many industrial cities middle class ladies took to wearing two pairs of white gloves when going out, one to go out wearing and one to return home wearing. The rationale for this was that the pollution was so thick that the white gloves would become grimy on one leg of their journey that they would have to change their gloves. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #pittsburgh #teachersfollowteachers #pollution #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #efficiency #photography

Upton Sinclair had wanted the Jungle to promote socialism in the United States and it much to his chagrin did not. It did promote food reform and many young people who read the Jungle became food reformers. Another person who was affected by the Jungle was then sitting President Theodore Roosevelt who reportedly gave up eating sausages after reading The Jungle. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #efficiency #reform #uptonsinclair #photography #fda #purefoodanddrugact #thejungle #roosevelt

Upton Sinclair For those who were able to receive meat from butcher shops the quality was often not much better. Death by food poisoning was a very real chance for urban dwellers. Impure foods were rampant until about 1906 when Upton Sinclair an urban reformer wrote and published his classic novel the Jungle. The Jungle told the story of an immigrant working in the Chicago slaughterhouses and the quality of meat that were produced there in. the Jungle prompted a round of reform legislation related to food practices. Sinclair who actually went undercover to research the practices of the slaughterhouses presented a very accurate account of the industry practices of the time. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #uptonsinclair #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #efficiency #photography #reform

Gentleman seated on a dead horse For cities that were having difficulties handling the amount of human waste produced any increase to the amount of animal waste would be unmanageable. Fearful projections stated that by 1910 large urban centers would be knee deep in horse manure. Another problem with horses was that they died. When a horse died in the street it would very often require an additional team of horses to remove the carcass. Urban reformers and urban photographers captured images and told the tales of children playing the street with rotting carcasses of horses or the insufferable reality of starving immigrants butchering horse or goat carcasses for the meat. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #deadhorse #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #efficiency #photography #horse

Industrial Pig Pen Animals particularly in major slaughterhouse centers like Chicago and Cincinnati saw tens of thousands of animals enter at once. Horses were also very prevalent in cities at this time they were of course the primary mode of transportation. They were also becoming a major problem for city officials. Many of the first generation of urban planners thought of capping off settling in cities like New York and Chicago because horses.

Aftermath of the Great Fire of Chicago There was also a great risk of fires as fires were needed for heating and cooking purposes. For lighting until the 20th century kerosene was needed for lighting purposes. So fire risk was extremely high and it was extremely common for city dwellings to burn down. So common that many urban dwellers took sport in fire sighting, that is wandering around the city watching the local building burn. Before the rise of municipal fire companies teams of adolescent boys would vie for the opportunity to extinguish fires. Sometimes physically fighting one another for the opportunity. The fire related infant mortality rate was abysmal. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #greatfire #socialscience #chicago #socialchange #rebuilding #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife

New Orleans French Quarter circa 1880 Other cities were just as bad in Philadelphia there were thousands of cesspools but no sewage sanitation system. In Boston the harbor was used as a deposit for sewage. This had the effect of taking out the sewage to sea when the tide flowed out and bringing the sewage right back in when the tide went out. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #neworleans #1880 #sewage

Baltimore backyards with residential outhouses before urban sewage reform. Another reason for the overcrowding of residential spaces was that industrial and urban workers had to live close to their places of employment. At this time there were no urban transportation networks. Water access and sanitation were very problematic in cities. In the southern states as late has the 1880’s the chief cities in the region still had open sewers. Cities like Baltimore and New Orleans literally would have raw sewage running through the streets. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #sewage #socialscience #outhouses #socialchange #blatimore #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife

Washburn Ave. Chicago 1900 How the other half lives is a great classic of American literature and useful primary source for examining the living conditions of industrial immigrant workers. Land value was very high and so were rents in the cities. There were also very few parks in cities, the cities themselves lacked strong centralized control and could not set aside land to be protected from industrial use. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #1900 #socialchange #chicago #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife

Jacob Riis In most cities there were no oversight to regulate what type of building got placed where. There were no zoning or regulatory policy. This led to individuals buying a plot of land and densely building housing structures on it to maximize profits. Tenement buildings of the late 19th century and early 20th century reflect this. One of the first people to explore this urban phenomena was Jacob Riis who published a book how the other half lives in 1890. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #jacibriis #photography

Tammany Hall on East 14th street Epidemics were common as a result. Rough and ready political rings and well established political machines like Aaron Burr’s creation Tammany Hall provided assistance as the cities population expanded in exchange votes but tended to do little else like Boss Tweed’s political ring. At the same time a generation of Anglo-Saxon mostly upper class Americans had tried to reform the cities and urban immigrants living conditions.

State Street, looking north from Quincy (Jackson to Adams) Chicago 1880 Cities grew very rapidly as the 19th century wore on. They were not planned on at all or either just very ill planned. Fueled by industrial growth and massive immigration cities became major destinations. With the rise of slaughterhouses, railyards and dockyards rural settlers poured into the cities as well. The cities of this time were very highly polluted. They were dependent on coal for industrial purposes and for private heating in homes. This led to cities being constantly clouded with soot and ash. Other hallmarks of cities of this time were contaminated water supplies, poor sanitation and very large numbers of animals only worsened public health conditions. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #1880 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #cities #citylife #chicago

It cannot be overstated or simplified that bringing in so many peoples from such varied ethnic and cultural backgrounds was a monumental accomplishment. Peoples who elsewhere in the world would have been acrimonious towards one another were brought in and largely lived harmoniously together. The United States certainly has a very checkered past when it comes to racial and ethnic antagonism, there were no mass campaigns of violence against the new immigrants. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #assimilation #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #success

Madison Grant’s 1916 book the Passing of the Great Race largely echoes the anti-immigrant view. Claiming that the scrub races of Europe are contaminating the United States. This resulted in the breakup of the immigrant ethnic enclaves. Their ethnic identification became weaker and weaker until it finally fell apart. The assimilation of immigrants serves as one of the United States chief successes. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #madisongrant #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #eugenics #thepassingofthegreatrace #antiimmigrant #assimilation

Stephen J. Gould’s book the mismeasure of man, explores the application of intelligence tests to prove that Anglo Saxons were genetically and intellectual superior to other ethnic groups. His research showed that the tests used were culturally biased. These tests where engineered to calibrate the intelligence that only long term residents of the United States would have. Nonetheless the anti-immigrant groups were successful in getting congress to passage legislation in 1920 and 1921 to restriction immigration. Further laws passed in the 1920’s made it increasingly difficult for immigrant to come to the United States unless they were coming from Northern Europe. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #steohengould #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #mismeasureofman #eugenics

The anti-immigrant group or Nativists also took the view that immigrants really were the wretches of the world. They drifted toward then began to promote the idea of Eugenics.

Roman Catholic immigrants from Poland, Italy, Germany and southern Europe were seen as contributing to the decay of American Values. There was an intense history of Anti-Catholicism in the republic. Many people believed it was impossible to be a good catholic and a good American. The chief argument used against Roman Catholics was that the United States was a republic and a democratic nation. While Roman Catholicism was an absolute monarchy ruled by the Bishop of Rome who demanded absolute obedience. They anti-Catholic argued that you cannot be both. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #antiimmigrant #anticatholic

As anti-immigrant sentiments rose new arguments were formulated to stem their flow in the republic. One argument was that new immigrants were bringing in dangerous ideas. German and Russian immigrants were targeted as the community that spread anarchist ideas in the United States. Socialists also tended to be recent immigrants of again German, Russian and Finnish immigrants. Religion was another argument used to control or bar continued immigration. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #nativist #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #antiimmigrant

Around 1910 the Melting pot outlook began to seriously waver among Americans. The term Melting Pot comes from a 1908 play called the Melting Pot by a Jewish immigrant from Great Britain Israel Zangwill. The play was a great success, the term on the other hand is very misleading. It is clear that some ethnic and immigrant groups contributed more to the shape and development of the culture of the United States than others. Many aspects of the United States can be traced back to Great Britain, Germany and the culture created by African Americans. The melting remains relevant in a historical sense because everybody had to conform to the shape of the pot. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #meltingpot #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #americanization #isrealzangwill

Of all of the 19th century immigrant groups none were more fiercely discriminated against than the Chinese. The Chinese had been coming to the western United States namely California since 1848 and were regularly employed by major industrialists like Leland Stanford. A fierce antagonism erupted between every other ethnic group and the Chinese because the Chinese were willing to work for much lower pay than they themselves were. This led to the rise of Chinese exclusion sentiments. Indeed the early trade unions in California all called for Chinese exclusion at the workplace. Chinese discrimination was in many ways comparable to the discrimination and exclusionary practices faced by African Americans in the redeemed South and elsewhere. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #chineseexclusion #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #chinese

Schools as mentioned before played a great role in assimilating immigrant children by introducing them to new national heroes. History teaching was geared toward directing children to appreciating a certain set of heroes. Men like George Washington, Andrew Jackson, Abraham Lincoln and even Theodore Roosevelt being framed as figures worthy of emulation in the place of other heroes. Different immigrant communities also developed differing styles of assimilation with some preferring to focus on educational success to achieve rapid upward mobility. While other communities favored leaving school early to help with the family’s income. The ethnic groups also displayed prejudice towards one another. In the early 20th century gang life was rampant among adolescent boys and young men in the immigrant ghettos. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #schools #learning #folkhero #culture #washington #lincoln #jackson #roosevelt

There also exists a controversy with immigrant success and assimilation. With many arguments being formulated for against the Americanization policies of the 1870’s to 19010. The experience of the First World War is often cited as a both a positive and negative of Americanization policies. When the United States first entered World War One German was still spoken by nearly 4 million immigrants and older communities particularly in New York and Pennsylvania. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #germans #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #families #americanization

The immigrants had to compromise and make concessions. They also made adaptations to older traditions. St. Patrick’s Day is one adaptation. There were no Irish Parades on St. Patrick’s Day in Ireland. It is an invention of Irish immigrants in New York City.

The relative success of assimilation led to the disbursement or migration by families out of these ethnic ghettos by the third generation. The stories circulating in Europe and elsewhere were certainly embellished but new economic opportunities were real and achievable for immigrants. Immigrants who achieved a rags to riches story like Andrew Carnegie who came to the United States were very rare. The destiny of the overwhelming bulk of the new immigrant’s families was a move into the middle class of the United States by the second and third generations. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #immigrants #immigration #success #assimilation

Another issue these immigrants faced was overcoming the language barrier. Many never did and were largely relegated to immigrant ghettos. As stated earlier their children went to the public schools which were taught explicitly in English only allowing for a unique situation to develop where the children would teach the parents English. Industrial discipline was another area where new immigrants often struggled to adapt. For rural workers unaccustomed to the pace or duties of factory work it was quite difficulty to develop the rhythm of industrial work. Cultural practices also had to be amended by industrial work schedules Jewish workers who worked for non-Jewish employers had to work on Saturdays. Roman Catholic immigrants who were used to celebrating the many feast days that allowed them to take off work now had to work on those days. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration #antiimmigration #antiimmigration

Ellis Island New York City was a major hub of immigration, there are two locations associated with the city’s immigrant history Castle Garden and her replacement Ellis Island. New arrivals to Ellis Island were subject to various health checks for eye disease, mental illness and lameness. There was also an intelligence test. Immigration screening was a very tense moment with 1 in 10 failing and being barred admission. New immigrants tended to cluster together in ethnic enclaves. New York again provides a great example of this. As ethnic groups often settled together and jostled around one another. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration #ellisisland #castlegarden #newyorkcity

The journey had been reduced to a week and new travel options allowed an industrial wage earner who to travel steerage which made for a rough journey but an easily affordable journey. The regularity of travel gave rise to birds of passage. Birds of passage were people who immigrated to the United States and immigrated to their homelands later in life. Seasonal birds of passage came during times when work was slow in their homes lands or when manual labor was needed on farms. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration #birdsofpassage

Castle Garden One reason for this open arms approach to immigration was that in many parts of the labor was scare. This allowed new immigrants who were going to be wage earners to receive much higher pay than if they had stayed in Europe. Immigration was expensive and the poorest of Europe’s huddled masses were unable to actually leave to go to the United States. Transatlantic voyaging in the 19th century was still expensive. By the turn of the 20th century industrial improvements and business plans had made travel and immigration much more affordable. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration #castlegarden #newyorkcity

Early on this new immigration was welcomed in the republic and immortalized by a poem written by Emma Lazarus in 1883. The poem was placed on a plaque on the statue of Liberty, a gift from France to the United Stated in honor of the 1876 centennial. The statue however was not sent and assembled until 1886. Lazarus was a 4th generation Jewish immigrant and died a year after the statue was assembled. Lazarus’ poem was placed on the statue in 1903 and is called the new colossus. The new colossus contrasts with other empires in history outlook and creates a mood of welcome and acceptance. A new type of national monument for a new type of nation. Expertly captured in Lazarus’ words "Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free”. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration #emmalazurus #thenewcolossus

Different groups of immigrants had better rates of success than others. British Immigrants had better success than nearly all other immigrant groups because they shared the same language and nearly the same culture. They also found work relatively easily being familiar with industrial or factory work. Russian, Chinese and Italian immigrants had a tougher time assimilating into American life. Many were fleeing prosecution 20,000 Jews were expelled from Moscow and St. Petersburg alone due to russification policies. World economic completion also played a major role decisions to immigrate. Italian citrus farmers were facing increased global competition from Florida and California citrus growers. Rather than stay in Italy many opted to immigrate to Florida and California instead to join the local citrus industry. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration #citruspickers

This melting pot outlook continuously swung between an anti-immigrant stance that warned of race suicide and led to immigration bans and quota policies. The motivations for immigration are not altogether clear with a number of arguments being presented. It is clear that through a set of circumstances relating to the lack of prosperity in Europe and a desire for opportunities in the United States purred the immigration to the United States between 1870 and 1920. Rates were astronomical averaging at about 1 million per year. This migration from Europe to the United States was a part of worldwide migration or diaspora of European peoples to the Americas, Africa, Asia and Australia. Incidentally there was a migration of people leaving China and coming to the western United States. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration

In multiethnic districts of the Atlantic seaboard cities these people found a grimmer reality. They nonetheless began to try or enable their children to climb to American respectability and prosperity. Using public schools and the United States public policy toward compulsory education the new immigrant’s children were transformed from polyglot denizens into English speaking citizens. While an intensive Americanization program transformed adult immigrants leading them to abandon old habits and forge new loyalties. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram  #immigrants #immigration

In the late 19th century there were a number of embellished about the United States circulating Europe. Many told of the undreamed of riches and opportunities that awaited new immigrants upon arrival. As conditions for farmers worsened in Europe many immigrated to the United States particularly from Great Britain, Germany and Scandinavia. Many Russian Jews also immigrated due to Tsarists policies targeting Jewish populations. Millions of Poles, Slavs, Irish, Italians and Greeks rounded out the group. They brought with them an array of cultures, religions, foods and beliefs to the United States. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #immigration #immigrants

We debate who the original Populists were and whether they were Radicals bent on overthrowing the existing order, progressive reformers  who tried to do what was right, reactionaries resisting the March if time and trying to turn the clock back or an agrarian special interest group trying to promote their interests. As for the modern meaning of the term it denotes the people and has very different applications depending on how you feel about the person you are describing. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #reflection #analysis

Although the Populist Party melted away before the 20th century the measures they advocated lived on and we’re picked the Progressives and New Dealers. The relevancy and importance of the Populists lessened over time as more of the farming population dwindled. Their rhetoric lives on as does their name whenever a call to action is made to address the economic plight of the less fortunate or the growing gap between rich and poor. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #reflection #analysis

Tom Watson After this election the Populists party largely collapsed and many began to think of the Populists Movement as a reaction against Industrialization and modernization. This idea is reinforced by what happened after the election Tom Watson one of the great Populists leaders tuned racist. He became one of if the biggest and most well known racist in the state of Georgia’s history surpassing Alexander Hamilton Stephens. He learned from the failed election that the race card was more effective than the class card. The populist also exhibited anti-Semitism, anti-catholism and penchant for promoting conspiracy theories. Bryan would go on to become a prohibitionist and later in the 1920’s reemerge attacking evolution. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #tomwatson #racism #prohibition #williamjenningsbryan

President William Mckinley The election ended with McKinley winning in an overwhelming victory 271-176 in the Electoral College and 7 million popular votes to 6.5 million. Bryan carried only the south, part of the Great Plains and silver mining states. McKinley swept the northeast, great lakes doing particularly well in Granger States and urban areas. These areas were never going to vote for Bryan they were not at all interested in inflation that would help farmers but not them. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #williammckinley #electionof1896

This led to a major party realignment over the money policy with Republicans favoring gold and the Democrats favoring silver. This put the populist in a quandary to he Democrats had taken their most popular issues, they debated joining the democrats which would have resulted in the loss of many of their stances and party identity.  They are also confronted with the reality that if the do not fuse the anti-silver candidate will win. They eventually decided to nominate Bryan as their candidate with Tom Watson as his running mate. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver #realignment

Coxie's Army He and his followers are intercepted he is arrested his followers are placed in detention camps. Things go from bad to worst in 1894 as the Supreme Court declares the income tax unconstitutional. In 1896 silver bugs or silverites gain control of the Democratic party and repudiate Cleveland and place free silver along many other Populists talking points into their platform. This leads to a major intraparty fight that ends with William Jennings Bryan gaining the party’s nomination in 1896. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #coxie'sarmy #washingtondc #jacobcoxie

Jacob Coxie Cleveland who was anti silver also persuaded Congress to rescind the 1890 silver act his actions makes the economic situation worse and leads to increased popularity of free silver. At this time the first March on Washington occurs led by Jacob Coxie Coxie's army marches in Washington to support his plan of a government financed work program for the unemployed that would use paper money to pay the participants. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #jacobcoxie #coxie'sarmy

President Grover Cleveland When the smoke cleared and the election is over Grover Cleveland is declared the winner in 1892 over Benjamin Harrison but the Populists had cleared over 1 million votes, claiming 22 electoral votes, a number if federal Senators are sympathetic to their cause, the also have elected Congressmen, state governors, and state legislators. In 1893 a massive depression hit the republic it is one of the worst and results in over 20% of the work force being thrown out of work with no government relief for those suffering. Those who still had jobs faced deep wage cuts, these wage cuts would lead to over 1000 strikes in 1894 alone many if them violent with the National Guard being called in to intervene on businesses behalf.  The economic problems are so severe that President Cleveland had to turn to major financiers like JP Morgan to aid the federal government. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #grovercleveland

The immediate response to Watson was to label him an anarchist who was threatening the womanhood of all Anglo-Saxon women with mongrelism and Negro Supremacy. A rehash of redeemer rallying cry’s during redemption. Violence and intimidation erupts all over the country as a serious effort is made by merchants and political we elites to squash the Populist Party. In the redeemed states African American disenfranchisement is completed to head off Watson’s actions reaping the benefit of all of the sharecropper’s votes. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver #silverites

Tom Watson of Georgia was an early proponent of uniting the races to improve the lot of all farmers. Tom Watson at this time went so far as to nominate an African American for executive office in Georgia and protected this man’s home with armed white Populists to deter racists from attacking. Conservative Democrats were thrown into panic. They were quick to realize that their strength rested on the votes of southerners. The redeemed south was solidly Democratic the Republican Party did not really campaign be cause it was hopeless. The emerging Populists Party’s in roads were serious. It threatened one party rule by the democrats. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver #bimetallist

The opponents of free silver argued that this was an unsound economic that lead to ruin of millions if not the republic. Congress twice agreed in 1878 with the bland Allison act and in 1890 with the Sherman silver purchase act to a limited silver policy. This did not cut it for the Populists who called for the unlimited coining of silver at the 16:1 so that there would more paper money in circulation. This would become the party’s most popular plank but their stated aim remained to unite all the workers of the republic regardless of race or section. In the Midwest the populist were demeaned as the unkempt social and intellectual backwaters of society whose ineptitude would destroy the republic. In the south a small minority of Populists attempted to unite both races in a class war against the conservative redeemer Democrats. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver #opposition

In the early republic the government had printed paper money as it received gold and silver but in 1873 the government abandon this dual metallurgist policy in favor of gold. This became known by the populist as the crime of '73. The farmers wanted this policy because people who had would then be encouraged to bring it to the government who would then begin printing more paper money causing the deflation then in effect to change to inflation enabling the farmers to be able to pay off their debts more easily. This was not a new idea the old greenback party of the 1870’s had called this. The deflation inflation argument is still being fought today by special interests groups. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver #crimeof73

And also it called for the Abolition of the Pinkerton Detective Agency which largely functioned as a corporate mercenary army. A sub treasury plan for grain storage and the ability of farmers to borrow against that grain, they also expressed sympathy for Industrial workers and called for better working conditions for them including an 8 hour work day and limited immigration. The current government policy was one of unlimited immigration. There main drawing point was free silver that is the return to the minting of silver coins at a ratio of 16 oz. to 1 oz. of gold. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #history #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver

The Populists then created one of the most comprehensive reform documents in the history of the United States. Their platform called for government ownership of the rail roads, telegraph and telephone. An end to subsidies to private corporations, the Confiscation and redistribution of land from rail roads and aliens to settlers. A graduated income tax and a political reform that would power back to the people. This included new ideas like the initiative that enabled everyday citizens to put forth legislation on their own rather than the state Legislature. The referendum that allowed for the citizen body to vote on a bill rather than the legislative body. The recall which allowed the citizen body to recall elected officials before their term expired, the direct elect of federal Senators as noted earlier Senators had been appointed by the state legislatures and a one term in office limit for the President. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism #freesilver #grovercleveland

The farmers now begin to organize locally at first with the patrons of Husbandry or Grange in 1867 which was a social organization. The Grange than became Political and this led to many Midwestern or Great Plains states passing Granger Laws to regulate the rail roads. The federal Supreme Court at first supported these laws but then in the late 1880’s struck them down as unconstitutional. Stating that the rail roads fell under inter state commerce and we’re thus under congressional over sight. This led to the Grange's transformation of the farmer alliances into a national political party. The farmers alliances were broken up into 3 groups one in the west two in the south and they had a combined membership of over 5 million. In the election of 1890 they elected 6 governors 3 senators and 50 Representatives. In 1892 the alliances meet and formally created the people’s party. The People’s Party attempted to unite all of the farmers all of the Industrial workers and all of the reformers. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism

The two main parties are not really willing to help the farmers for a number reasons. The principles of Laissez faire economics and the iron laws of wages led many political leaders to the belief that nothing could be done to change things. Men like Andrew Carnegie said that this reality was inevitable. The two parties after reconstruction ended were very evenly matched national elections hinged on a few voters in a handful of states. This led to a special interests being placed on urban political machines, special interests groups and corporate favors to secure votes. The led the farmers to denounce both parties as corrupt. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism #farmersalliance

In the redeemed states all of these problems are compounded by the crop lean system and Sharecropping. The overwhelming majority of the farmers in the south do not own their own land. They live and work on someone else’s land pay the land lord with a percentage of their crop. They are also forced to pledge a percentage of their crop to their land lord for tools, seeds and daily necessities while their crops are being worth less and less. Farmers are subjects to markets beyond their control, they are socially isolated and have suffered a severe loss to the status in the new Industrial and urban republic. Farmers were once the back bone of the republic by this point they looked at as relics of the past and are addressed by pejoratives such as hayseeds or Hicks. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism

The falling prices of crops led farmers to grow more crops to pay off their debts, but growing more crops only worsened things because the farmers glutted the market and prices fell even lower. Also high tariffs raised the price of the manufactured goods the farmer had to buy but not the produce he sold forcing him to sell his goods on a depressed world market while buying goods on a protected market. The farmers faced very high taxes and was subjected to very high interest rates and rail road shipping rates. Farmers in the west were extremely vulnerable to this because of the lack of competing rail ways the rail ways also control access to land because of the lands Grant’s they received from the federal government. Farmers are also subjected to paying high prices to grain elevators and storage. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism

President Grover Cleveland The main problem confronting farmers was over production, due to the mechanization of farming equipment that led to more acres of land being out under cultivation. After the civil war the number of farms in the country tripled as the Great Plains were settled. As the republic became more industrialized more and more improvements were made to tools needed to farm the quantity of crops that could be harvested leapt six fold. This led to yearly staple crops like wheat and corn falling in price. This was compounded with the fact that American agriculture was apart the global economy and had to compete with farmers around the world. This was not the end of the farmer’s plight the farmers had to contend with economic deflation and the reality of being constantly in debt due to the need to continually buy more land and to purchase the new Industrial farming machinery. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism #grovercleveland

President Benjamin Harrison The term Populists is confusing to many. It can and has been used to denote contempt and to reward both liberal and conservative leaders and social figures. This echoes the treatment of the original Populists and their leaders in the late 19th century. Contemporary Populists have very little in common with the original Populists. Populism as we have discussed in previous lectures was a reactionary movement initiated by farmers who were negatively affected by the Industrial revolution. While the Industrial Revolution produced unfathomable wealth for a few and the republic as a whole it left others increasingly impoverished and at risk for her exploitation namely unskilled Industrial workers and farmers. Most people are familiar with the farmer’s plight but far fewer know about the farmer’s plight. This is partly because of the fact that such a small percentage of our population is engaged in farming today. In the late 19th century this was not the case and those farmers and their families faced very serious problems. #historywithted #history #fastfact #americanhistory #ushistory #youtuber #teacher #wisdom #knowledge #historybuff #historynerd #education #homeschool #nerd #geek #ushistory #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #judiciary #populists #populistparty #populism #benjaminharrison
