Product Description
This is a Source Pack I put together for my class's study of the Gilded Age. It is split into two sections: the Western Frontier and Industrialization. Each section begins with historiography and then is followed by various primary source documents.

The source pack centers around the following question, "Should the Gilded Age be viewed as a step forward or backward in American History?"

This Source Pack includes both secondary and primary sources and includes the following sources:
