Questions:
1. In Bread & Roses, author Bruce Watson details the origins of the textile industry in Lawrence, Massachusetts, during the 19th century. What specific factors contributed to the development of the textile industry in Lawrence? In previous modules this semester, we’ve focused on the growth of industry during the second half of the 19th century. In what ways did the development of industry in Lawrence reflect the broader growth of industry in the United States during this period in the past?
2. Bruce Watson titled chapter 2 of Bread & Roses, “Immigrant City,” a reference to the significance of immigration in the history of Lawrence, Massachusetts. Who immigrated to Lawrence during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and why? What was life like for immigrants in Lawrence during this era? In previous modules this semester, we’ve focused on the influx of immigrants during the second half of the 19th century. In what ways did the immigrant experience in Lawrence reflect the broader immigrant experience in the United States during this period in the past?
3. In Bread & Roses, author Bruce Watson describes the living and working conditions ordinary laborers experienced in turn of the 20th century Lawrence, Massachusetts. What examples from the book typify the living and working conditions in Lawrence? What examples from the assigned primary source evidence illustrate the working conditions in the Lawrence textile mills? In previous modules this semester, we’ve focused on the living and working conditions prevalent in the nation’s cities during the Gilded Age. In what ways did the living and working conditions in Lawrence reflect the broader living and working conditions in the United States during this period in the past?
4. The Lawrence textile mill strike of 1912 lasted sixty-three days, from January 12 to March 14. What specific factors caused textile mill workers to strike? What were the strikers’ demands/goals? What examples from Bread & Roses and the assigned primary source evidence demonstrate such motivations and goals? How do the Lawrence strikers’ motivations and goals compare with those of strikers you’ve learned about previously this semester?
5. In Bread & Roses, author Bruce Watson details a number of challenges that the Lawrence textile mill strikers experience during their sixty-three day strike. What examples from Bread & Roses and the assigned primary sources indicate the challenges the strikers endured? How do these challenges compare with the challenges strikers experienced in previous strikes you’ve learned about this semester?
6. In Bread & Roses, author Bruce Watson focuses on a range of strategies adopted by the Lawrence mill strikers. What examples from Bread & Roses and the assigned primary source evidence demonstrate the strikers’ strategies? How do the strategies compare with those employed in other strikes you’ve learned about this semester?
7. Very few strikes were successful at the turn of the 20th century. Even so, the Lawrence mill strike of 1912 did enjoy a measure of success. Referring to Bread & Roses, what specific successes did the Lawrence mill strike achieve? Why was this strike relatively successful, unlike many strikes of this era? In what ways did public reaction to the strike contribute to the strike’s success?
8. Bruce Watson writes on pg. 3 of Bread & Roses, “What happened in Lawrence has been too often relegated to history’s ghettos.” In other words, this is the sort of event (a strike) in a field of United States history (the history of the labor movement) that is mainly overlooked, if not forgotten entirely. Consider how Watson’s claim relates to a controversy in Maine from 2011 over a mural depicting the history of the labor movement in the state. Here are two links to stories related to this controversy: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/23/maine-paul-lepage-unions-labor-mural_n_839520.html and http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/28/maine-labor-mural-removes_n_841369.html. Based on these two accounts and your own experience, do you agree that labor history is generally overlooked? If you agree, why do you think that the history of the labor movement is overlooked? If you disagree, why? In that same paragraph, Watson asserts that the broader history of Lawrence textile mill strike of 1912 is “a quintessentially American event, one of which the entire nation can be proud.” Do you agree or disagree that this is an event in United States history that the nation can be proud of? Why?

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
