The Progressive Era

The Middle Class Takes Charge. For much of September, we will be examining the Progressive Era, a period that covers roughly 1900-1920.  

During this time, the Middle Class reformers remade America by changing the relationships among:

  • government

  • business

  • labor and

  • the public 

 

To do this, the Middle Class had to reform the wealthy elites and the working-class.
