1. In 1916, the US sent a military force into Mexico
(confused about the date, is it 1914?)
2. A major shortcoming of the progressive movement was its failure to address the issus of _________.
b. woman's suffrage
d. political corruption
-------------------i think its A.
True. The 1914 mobilization just patrolled the border.
I agree a. The first era of the progressive movement addressed slavery, mainly. But racism was not addressed. The second era of the progressive movement, starting about 1880, focused on labour issues, suffrage, and corruption. Jim Crow laws abounded. Once could argue that the movement failed to eliminate corruption, but they did address it. But in neither case, was racism ever attacked successfully.
