Suffolk University professor Kathryn Lasdow teaches a class on politics and culture in the United States from 1800 through the 1830s. She describes how the country changed during the period between the presidencies of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson. 


“(In painter John Gast's American Progress) we have this image in our minds of a nation in motion, a society in motion. And from the 1830s to the 1850s, the market revolution and the resulting urban changes had produced an American landscape that people described as energetic, materialistic and seemingly constantly on the move.”

New from C-SPAN Podcasts


On the dust jacket of Debby Applegate's book, Madam, it says "Simply put: Everybody came to Polly's." Polly Adler was the madam of some of the most popular brothels in New York City during the 1920s. According to Ms. Applegate, her pals included FDR, Frank Sinatra, Desi Arnaz and Duke Ellington.
