=How Life Drastically Changed After the Civil War= After the Civil War, America was left in shreds and the reconstruction process began. The Compromise of 1877 ended the Reconstruction Era. Americans started heading out west and cities developed due to an increase in immigration to the United States. The growth of industry rallied certain Americans to create the Progressive Movement, which brought about reform to child labor, working conditions, women's suffrage, and the temperance movement. What happened to the freed slaves that lived in the South? African Americans were now freed, but they faced difficult circumstances as a result of racial segregation and the Jim Crow Laws. Over the next few lessons we will examine how life in America drastically changed after the Civil War.
