Video title: Coming to Terms with the New Age 1820s-1850s

Use this Discovering American History video entitled Coming to Terms with the New Age 1820's to 1850's to study the effects the "market revolution" had on American urban society, as well as the responses of people to the process. Learn about how the most fundamental effects were in immigration and the changes it caused in the nation's ethnic makeup, in the growth of cities, social and political troubles, and in changing working conditions that brought labor unrest. Learn about how responses to all of these changes were particularly manifested in new types of community groups: labor unions, big-city machines, social reform organizations, utopian settlements, antislavery societies, and the women's rights movement.
