Growing up during the Industrial Revolution

As Americans worried that republican institutions might not survive the radical egalitarianism of the age, they also wrestled with such destabilizing and tortuous issues as immigration, industrialization, slavery and westward expansion. Terrified that it all might fall apart, Americans turned their attention to more soothing subjects, ones that also held out hope for the future: "children." _ Claire Perry, Curator Cantor Art Center
