Discuss the major changes in American cultural life in the decades following the Civil War and explain some of the main factors causing that change. Here is the midterm. Take your time and answer questions to the best of your ability. Use text and lectures as needed. Outside sources are okay too but don’t plagiarize and don’t find sources using google (in other words, use the library)! Write a strong conclusion and support your main points with concrete examples. These can’t be successfully answered in just a paragraph or two.
