https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=307wUgPaLRA&feature=youtu.be  Please watch this! And make reference from the video in each question you choose.  Choose 2 of the following 3 questions.  Include the question # and an introductory sentence so that we all know which question you’re answering. Write one paragraph for each question you choose. (Don’t be confused by multiple sub-questions in each question. For example, question #2 includes several sub-questions, but just think of those as all part of question #2). 1. What were the factors that made the United States a leading industrial power in the years following the Civil War? In other words, what advantages did the U.S. have that allowed it to industrialize so quickly & effectively? 2. Was industrialization good for everyone?  If so, why? If not, why? Which groups of people benefitted from it, and which groups suffered? 3. What was the official stance of the federal government when it came to regulating the economy? In other words, did the government feel that it was best to closely regulate the economy & businesses or not? Did the government sometimes take actions that conflicted with their official stance? (Hint: pay attention to the 14th amendment as described in the reading from “A People’s History of the United States”).
