    During most of the 1800s, our country was less than 100 years old. People's parents and grandparents had helped fight for our independence. As they looked back on the glorious days at the end of the 18th century, it was natural to look around and see how they could revive the idealism that surrounded gaining our freedoms. What new worlds could they conquer? Since the freedoms only applied to white males, it was obvious for the reformers to want to extend these freedoms to women and blacks.
