Professor Bruce Zellers, B.A., M.A. Oakland University
The political crisis of the gilded age leads to an important question: Was political life reformed during this time when our nation was changing? At the end of the 19th century American politics were paradoxical: They were both popular and corrupt. Dirty tricks and outright violence were common. Votes were literally bought and sold. However, reform came and American elections were transformed. Join us as Professor Zellers explains this important time in our country’s history.
