History the rise of the Progressive Era
ASSIGNMENT: Discuss in detail the rise of the Progressive Era. What were its major movements and influences (i.e. social gospel, social justice workers and attorneys muckrakers, etc.)? Given that this period was more one of centrist reform, how was it criticized from the right and left ideologically? What was the legacy of Progressivism socially and politically? How did women and recent immigrants tend to fare in this period? Do you think Progressivism as a counter to Social Darwinism succeeded, failed, or both? Has Progressivism influenced the present political climate, how or how not? Elaborate.

NOTES: 1. PLEASE make sure the citation style is using Chicago style (with page number if applicable) because the previous essay I ordered was not following the proper Chicago style 2. The main source is the Eric Foner, “Give Me Liberty” book chapter 17, so I expect the sources are mostly taken from this book.
