Transcript of Romanticism

Synthesis
The American identity of the Romantic era was individualism. People were very creative during this era and this made them individuals because they expressed their feelings in different ways. Not to mention, this was the era in which people started to believe in their own things, rather than what they were told.

Romantic Era: 1800 - 1860
By: Myah Moman, Kassidy Weil, and Haley Patel
"At first Easterners were skeptical about the gold-flecked rumors spreading from John Sutter's mill. After President Polk confirmed the "extraordinary character" of the strike in his annual message to Congress in December, gold fever engulfed the United States. More than eighty thousand gold seekers made it to San Francisco in 1849 alone--about twenty five thousand arriving by sea and fifty five thousand who crossed the continent by overland routes. And this was only the beginning: each year after 1849 thousands of people arrived in California hoping to strike it rich. Most people in the federal government agreed that the political future of the West had to be determined. The fate of California, now bustling with settlers, as well as the political destiny of New Mexico (inhabited by former Mexicans) and the Mormons at the Great Salt Lake, could no longer be postponed."
S: P.T. Barnum (1810-91); editor of the Herald of Freedom and Gospel Witness (1831-32); acquired the American Museum (1841); "The World's Greatest Showman"
O: traveling circus (1880)
A: anyone interested in Barnum & Bailey's circus; anyone interested in entertainment
P: to educate readers about how P.T. Barnum became "The World's Greatest Showman"
S: traveling circus; The American Museum; P.T. Barnum
Tone: entertaining; positive; informative; captivating
This article shows how people in the Romanticism Era were independent. P.T. Barnum did everything he could to get the American Museum and finally received it on credit. Romantics were imaginative and did what they wanted. P.T. Barnum found people for his circus that were talented, but Barnum also improvised and made people seem like they were disabled (or a "freak") even when they were not.

Technology

During the Romantic era, many people contradicted the theory of Enlightment. They believed in spirituality rather than science and because they were creative and imaginative, to express their views, people would express their feelings and thoughts in surreal paintings, which illustrated individuality. Also, people painted pictures of humans because Romantics believed that humans had "godlike potential."

Timeline
“Accordingly, Barnum merits recognition for having brought what became the “sideshow’ to prominence as a central part of what would soon constitute the show business in the United States. Grotesquely malformed specimens of humanity-had been among the most popular exhibits of traveling carnival shows and fairgrounds for centuries on both sides of the Atlantic. The ‘golden age’ did not begin, however, until a 31-year-old Barnum launched his latest enterprise in New York-the renovated American Museum (1841-65) across from what is still St Paul’s Church in Lower Manhattan-and ushered the freak show into the era of mass culture.”

The Industrial Revolution started earlier in this era so there were many new job opportunities. Also, because of the Industrial Revolution, there were advances in technology, like machines and people didn't have to word do styff by hand. This relates to individuality because the Enlightment is related to the Industrial Revolution and people migrated all over the country to look for jobs that they were comfortable with and this represents individuality because not everyone liked to do the same things
Many machines were invented during the Industrial Revolution

"'Man was born free and he is everywhere in chains' was written by Rousseau as a critique of the society around him. He believed that civilization conditions the individual away from his or her true nature. Enlightenment grew out of the industrial revolution where the scientific response to life, allowed the individual to not be at mercy to his fate or the natural world, but rather assert control over nature through the creation of technology. Here people moved from towns to cities to work in factories or railroads, focusing on material gain and perhaps not quality of life. With the increased technology and transportation, the possibility for economic expansion, migration and colonization became possible."
S: author of American eras, Edition 1
O: American eras, Edition 1, 1997

P: to explain what happened during the Gold Rush, to educate people about the Gold Rush and why people moved to San Francisco
S: the effects the California Gold Rush had on Americans in 1849
Tone: objective
This article relates to today because it relates to reality. Back then there were many problems in everyday life and the Gold Rush just may have been a little light through their tunnel.
The Raven relates to today because it's showing that there is a positive in every situation. It gave people something good to think about rather than think negative all the time.
