Guided Reading & Analysis: Nationalism and Economic Development, 1816-1848 Chapter 8- Nationalism and Economic Development , pp 150-166 Read the quote from Hezekiah Niles on page 150, 1. Based on this quote, what is a defining characteristic of the Era of Good Feelings? The Era of Good Feelings marked a period in the political history of the United States that reflected a sense of national purpose and a desire for unity among Americans in the aftermath of the War of 1812. This can be seen in the increased nationalism after the war of 1812. Guided Reading, pp 150-166 The Era of Good Feelings pp 155-153 2. To what extent was this era “good?” The name of this period of time was not consistent with the events that occurred during this time. The era was a phase of happiness and prosperity at times.

He was trying to make Washington into a role model for the people at that time. People wanted to know about Washington’s private life, and by constructing this story, he was trying to create a positive leader that people could look up to and even relate to. 5.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
