This course will explore the accuracy of Twain's description.  In all three sections, North, South, and West, there were bright shiny spots and moments, particularlyfor the privileged, but if the surface is scratched, there were undercurrents of discontent, disillusionment, and a sense of defeat.By the end of the period these undercurrents rose to a position of dominance. Lecture (plus Questions)
