Good course. Only wished there was more political history from this era cause these Presidents seemed very uneventful and hoped this course would have filled in many more blanks.

Clear narrative good pacing. As other comments have noted this is an interesting and important era to reflect upon. The rise of urbanization, big business, our labor struggles, the fall of reconstruction idealism outside the context of the two world wars all live with us to this day. I think it’s a bit harsh to critique the lack of detail on any given topic or personality. For example PBS has an outstanding video on Andrew Carnegie. And it’s easy to fill bookshelves with studies from this period. The benefit here is an engaging and manageable overview.
