America 1900

George Foster Peabody Award

The year 1900 was the dawn of the “American century,” a time of optimism, progress, confidence, and turmoil. America 1900 re-creates the old century’s final year, dramatic days when U.S. troops went to fight in Asia, public debate raged over sex and morality, racial tensions boiled, and dizzying technological change propelled Americans into an uncertain future.
