The Twilight of Progressivism
Create a timeline of key events relating to progressivism during Wilson’s first terms. Use the following dates as a guide (1913, 1914, 1915, 1916)
Then write a short paragraph explaining which event you think best demonstrates Progressive Reform? Which is the worst example?
Wilson said, “without the watchful….resolute interference of the government, there can be no fair play between individuals and …. The trust.” How does this statement reflect Wilson’s approach to reform? Support your answers
(think about government’s responsibility to the public, the passage of two key anti-trust measures during Wilson’s administration)
If you were a suffragist in the early 1900s, which organization would you have joined? The National American Association ? or the National Woman’s Party?
(think about Catt’s strategy to win the vote, Alice Paul’s approach to achieving suffrage, the national woman’s party’s protest at the 1916 Democratic Party convention
