  2. Actually, I think you are correct on all three questions. The Gilded Age saw industrialists (especially railroad owners and oil companies) reap HUGE profits while paying low wages, and forcing small companies out of business. It was profitable for some, but not the many. The progressive era is characterized by attempts to rectify that situation with new laws (outlawing child labor, restricting monopolies, etc.) And Twain's novel was titled "The Gilded Age."

  4. Keep in mind that while there were depressions in the 1870s and the 1890s, the general characteristic of the era from about 1868 to the turn of the 20th century is called "The Gilded Age." Gilded for the so-called "robber barons." The Progressive Era began in the late 1890s and came to some fruition beginning in 1901 until the start of World War I or America's entry into that war in 1917.
