Our history is defined by a variety of eras that describe particular things. Each has its own way of expressing the different aspects of that time. One of these was the progressive era. This was the era defined by social activism and political reform. People were slowly getting aware of their surroundings and starting to have a meaningful part in everyday politics. It lasted from 1890s to the 1920s.

During this era certain people were referred to as Muckrakers. These people included the investigate journalists and authors that actually wrote American problems in the writings and made the American society aware of their existence.
