  • $ 1 Million Dollars Dbq Analysis

    How can I give away $1 million dollars? I need to find good causes within the progressive movement to maximize the impact of my gifts. Progressivism is a variety of responses to the economic and social problems introduced to America during rapid industrialization. This movement took place between approximately 1900 and 1920.

Also, “These rats were nuisances, and the packers would put poisoned bread out for them; they would die, and then rats, bread and meat would go into the hoppers together” (Doc D). The workers were introducing poison to food they were processing which could pose serious health…
