Priscilla McGreehon. Print. page 571 2. Slavic immigrants settled where they found low-paying jobs in factories or as day laborers, and they formed small communities across the cities where they created social and cultural institutions. The housing in the cities was cramped and many immigrants lived in tenements. Families typically shared one room, with little to no lighting and unsanitary conditions. There were unions for those who couldn’t speak the language well that helped Slav’s. #2 Works Cited Slavic Ohioans - Ohio History Central - A product of the Ohio Historical Society."

The Nativists thought that immigration was a threat to society. They claimed that immigration was bad because of diversity: different religions, different languages, increase of criminal actions, spread radical political ideas, and worked cheaply which lowered wages of native Americans. Social Darwinism was a belief that the strongest should survive and the weak would wear off, in society. The Populists supported people’s natural rights against the aristocratic America, especially typically supported farmers, laborers, and other reformers. Social Gospel-ists rejected capitalism. Pragmatists believed that ideas should be judged by its usefulness. #3 Works Cited "The Social Gospel." Travel and History . Web. 24 Oct. 2009. <http://www.u-s- history.com/pages/h850.html>.

During the late 19 th century, central business replaced large houses, businesses, and small artisan houses. In 19 th century when the most desirable housing was located at the heart of the city but later, due to improvements in transportation it wasn’t anymore. Better transportation allowed the middle and upper class citizens to live further away from their work. The introduction of cable cars, and streetcars after 1880 broadened residential choices for the upper and middle class. Immigrants were still concentrated in ghettos. People didn’t leave for the frontier they just went to the outskirts of the city. # 4 Works Cited
