In 1840, there were about 17 million Americans, as compared to less than four million in 1790, when the first American census was taken. The 1840s saw the USA in the midst of trends that define its character today. Between Napoleon and World War I, European soil was largely free of warfare. That was partly because the USA acted as a safety valve for poorer Europeans. British subjects and Germans were the most common immigrants, and the Africans who came against their will as slaves. Early industrialization in Europe was a hellish experience, and the UK led the way. British factories were known as “satanic mills” and dismal British urban life of the late 18th and early 19th century is epitomized by the work of Charles Dickens. His was published in 1843.
The Films of John Ford - by Michael E. Grost
Land grabbing and dispossessing the natives was how America was built, and was the of Jackson’s career, but future CIA-asset Arthur Schlesinger won a Pulitzer Prize for his , published in 1945, and in it there is no mention of Jackson the land grabber, no mention of the Trail of Tears, no mention of his slave ownership, no mention of the Battle of Horseshoe Bend, which made him famous and won him the presidency. That is how a great deal of American “history” has been fabricated, by simply whitewashing over the greatest feats of the early robber-baron presidents, acting as if they never happened, and winning awards for doing so. Schlesinger was also the most prominent person to fabricate the Camelot image of the Kennedy presidency. The cultural awakening of the 1960s has helped ameliorate such nationalistic revisionism.
