Andres Marin-Gallo Mrs. Hornstein AP US History 3 September 2017 Document 13.1- Identify: A similarity between both images are that people are celebrating but it seems like in the engraving they embellished to make it seem like a happier event. A difference is that in the photograph the people are keeping to themselves on each side of the people shaking hands but in the engraving people are surrounding the men in the middle as they celebrate. Analyze: The second image shows a more optimistic view of America’s future. The first image in the sky there are many clouds while the second image with clear sky is symbolic of a better future. Evaluate: Greater mobility helped to foster a new national identity. Beforehand the U.S. had gone through sectionalism and people were more loyal to their section than the country itself. With greater mobility people could travel greater distances and not be stuck into their sections their lives like what had happened before. Document 13.2- Identify: Grady’s main argument is that the South is making an effort to model itself after the North and their economy and reconnect the South to the North. Analyze: Grady’s audience is the members of the New England Society in New York City. Evaluate: Politically it can be seen as a effort to bridge the gap for two groups of people that were formerly at war. Economically it would fix the fractured economy of the South that was in disarray after the elimination of the slave trade. Document 13.3- Identify: The figures in this cartoon that are the most prominent are the larger figures in the back that have the names of trusts on their stomachs. They represent the funds that people invest their money in and the details that explain this are on their stomachs in which each larger person has the name of a trust on their stomach.
Analyze: The larger men are the trusts that the money is put into while the smaller men are the men of the Senate who it seems are getting paid to follow the will of the larger men. This depiction seems to indicate that the artist believes that the wealthy and the trusts were in control of the government. Evaluate: Yes this image does distort the relationship between big business and the US government because it makes it seem like the rich funds can control the Senate. Document 13.4-
