Jim Crow: laws that were created with the purpose to enforce segregation of blacks from whites.  Coxey’s Army: Dr. Jacob Coxey got riot troops together to march on Washington because he  wanted the government to create jobs for jobless individuals.  *could be other identifications, so don’t just study these.  Short Essay: This will most likely be about the book we were assigned to read on The Triangle Fire. This was  a shirtwaist company whose building caught fire due to lake of safety codes. Many people were  killed and this could have been prevented. Owners got off almost scot free and families of the  deceased got little to nothing. This sparked the riots for Women’s Rights and protection for  women in the work place. This included high wages and less working hours.  Long Essay: HIS109 Study Guide Exam on Monday, February 15, 2016 1.Could be on the Gilded Age. What was it about? When did it happen? Was it gilded? Using  older machines to create new ones? Did enhancements make things better or worse?  2.Could be about the Industrial Revolution. How it made America richer and poorer?
