AP History: Key Points Ch. 26: The Great West and Agricultural Revolution

I wanted to make this short and to the point. We have lingered in the post-Civil War period long enough. Instead of giving you 3 questions with paragraphs attached to them, I have decided to give you a statement that describes the west during this time and have you find IDs that build on the statement.

The American west of the post-Civil War was a land almost entirely detached from from the money changers and top hat wearing robber barons of the east coast; Indian wars, cow towns, and ‘Helldorado’ mining towns show a world whose only real connection to the east was the hatred banks and railroads among farmers and Bryan’s populist campaign.
