The gilded age, the age of Manliness

The gilded age is where I have been focusing my work lately. The age of Manliness. The Spanish American war was fought for an empire, to be sure, but also to test the Manliness of a generation who grew up after the civil war.

in 1898 the public was chomping at the bit for a war. in 1998 they were very angry when the president blew up some guys in Kosovo.

hmmm
