William Jackson, in his book "A History of the United States Between the Civil War and 1900" notes, "as a result of the Industrial Revolution and the expansion of America westward and beyond, the influence of the corporations continue today and sheds light on an ever-growing domestic travesty". The paper shows that in the decades between 1860 and 1900, the United States underwent numerous social and political changes brought about by the devastating consequences of the Civil War, the great westward expansion beyond the Mississippi River, the development of class structures in American cities and especially the developments that resulted from the Industrial Revolution. The paper shows that all of these together not only altered the entire face of American society but also helped to make the country one of the most important and powerful nations in the western hemisphere.
