With America’s transformation into a modern industrial society in the late 19th century came many social and economic problems. These in turn inspired the Progressive Era.

Marking the 100th anniversary of the 1912 presidential election in which Theodore Roosevelt ran on the Progressive Party ticket, the exhibit features letters, cartoons, pictures, and broadsides illustrating America’s shift from rural/agrarian to urban/industrial society.

Created by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
