Description

When the Chicago River was reversed in 1900, the world of industrialization had created technologies including the telephone and recorded sound and film. Neo-imperialism had started the Boxer Rebellion, Philippine-American War, and Second Boer War. The “modern world” was being recreated, and the United States, deep into the Progressive Era, was stepping onto the world stage. In this presentation, John Gieger (TPS-DePaul) will explore history from the perspective of the year 1900 using Library of Congress resources. Learn how to navigate the LOC website and collections, find free resources, and participate in a sample activity.
