What Was the Progressive Era?

The Progressive Era was roughly within the years of 1890-1929. During this time, Americans were trying to be as accepting of new ideas as possible. To do this, many felt that corruption had to be eliminated. They decided to attempt this elimination through the prohibition of alcohol. It was during this era that people were becoming more open-minded to specific ideals. In 1920, women were finally given the right to vote. Americans were also obsessed with the idea that new is always better and more efficient and were looking for advances in technology. This led to Americans becoming more globalized in their thoughts and searching for advances not just in America but in European nations as well.
