2>>>> ASSIGNMENT

(Please select ONE set of documents
to complete the PDA #1 Assignment. You will choose whether you wish to
read the documents and answer the related essay prompts for either the
document on Gilded Age politics or the major Progressive Era platforms
of Theodore Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson.)

Document Set #1: Plunkitt of Tammany Hall (1905)

This
document sheds an unfiltered light on politics in the Gilded Age by
detailing the famous / infamous career of a New York City politician.
Plunkitt’s views provide a window into this era and the fundamental
transformations reshaping the country and redefining what it meant to be
an American.

Answer the following three (3) questions in an essay a MINIMUM length of Two (2) FULL Pages.

1. What does this document reveal about the nature of American politics in the Gilded Age? Please be specific.

2. What major aspects of Mr. Plunkitt’s approach to politics do you approve of and/or disapprove of? Why? Please be specific.

3.
Are there parallels with this primary document from the early 1900s and
the nature of politics and role of politicians in modern society today?
In what specific ways?

Please remember to use specific evidence from these documents to support your arguments.


Document Set #2: The New Nationalism vs. The New Freedom

The

1912 Presidential Election was easily one of the most dynamic if not

consequential elections in the 20th century. While incumbent Republican

President William Howard Taft faced opposition from the Democratic Party

nominee Woodrow Wilson, he also faced arguably the greatest third party

challenge in the Progressive candidate, former President Theodore

Roosevelt. If that wasn’t interesting enough, the Socialist Party of

America ran Eugene V. Debs who received over 900,000 popular votes. The

race very quickly evolved into a contest between Theodore Roosevelt

(“New Nationalism”) and Woodrow Wilson (“New Freedom”) who both espoused

progressive values but articulated fundamentally different approaches

to leading the country and government’s role in a modern democracy.

Answer the following three (3) questions in an essay a MINIMUM length of Two (2) FULL Pages.

1. What are the major arguments contained within these two political platforms? Please be specific.

2. Which platform (New Nationalism or New Freedom) do you agree with most and why? Please be specific.

3. Are there modern day parallels regarding debates about the role of government in our society today? In what specific ways?

Please remember to use specific evidence from these documents to support your arguments.
