Question Description

I’m working on a history multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.

During the Gilded Age, the nature of work and the composition of the workforce changed in dramatic ways. How did American workers respond to these changes? How did they seek to change and gain some control over their working lives?  

Please refer back to the primary source you read for the Red Cloud on Monday. Answer the questions below, and make sure you answer with specific examples. Moreover, remember to provide concrete examples of sources you would find outside the document itself on the last section of the exercise. Don’t just say, “the library” or “an internet site.”

1) What is unique about your document? Is it handwritten or typed? 

2) Who was the original author of this document? Who was the intended audience? What is the date of the document?

3)  What is the main point or idea of the document? Why do you personally think this document was written?

4) Other than your textbook or the source itself, where could you find more information on this document?
