The 1890’s – Part I: Mauve Decade

A look at the 1890’s, a decade where America developed in many ways. This is part of a FOUR PART series of podcasts on My History Can Beat Up Your Politics. X-rays, flying machines, oyster pirates and basketball. Also strikes, war, populism and long-forgotten literature. How did things get modern in America? The popularity of a color derived from coal tar is just one of the ways. Of course Modern doesn’t mean all upside, necessarily, and we get into the conflicts during the time.
