We will examine the ripple effect of Industrial Age technology as it transforms and shapes late 19th and early 20th century America.  Topics include agriculture and industry; farm and city - horizontal and vertical landscapes; from iron horse to internal combustion engine; and taming the west.  Industrial transformation begins with assembly line, mass production, catalogs, RFD, and the homogenization of American culture; telegraph, phonograph, telephone, "moving pictures," home remedies, homeopathy, medicine shows; M.D.s, antibiotics, hospitals, economics, Robber Barons, immigrants and labor, economics and politics, and technology and the arts.
