      Political Cartoons in the Gilded Age. Nickolas Szymanski. As we begin to explore the Gilded Age (), that era in American History sandwiched between the Civil War/Reconstruction and the Progressive Era to the Great War, I want students to be able to understand political cartoons and why they were used so often during this era. The Gilded Age has been often portrayed as one of those dark periods in American history—a period of greed and corruption, of brutal industrial competition and harsh exploitation of labor. But buried beneath this one-dimensional portrait is a much more complex set of facts.

      Education reformers such as Horace Mann began calling for public education systems for all. By , 31 states required 8- to year-olds to attend school. Many small colleges helped young men make the transition from rural farms to urban jobs and lives. Schools were now being paid for by taxpayers, but usually only up to the 8th grade. The era known as the Gilded Age (s to s) was a time of vigorous, exploitative individualism. Despite widespread suffering by industrial workers, southern sharecroppers, displaced American Indians, and other groups, a mood of optimism possessed the United States.
