Contact Author By far, the most contentious issues of the nineteenth century were those of freedom and equality. The question that drove these contests over freedom and equality centered on which social groups in American society should be allowed freedom and equality. Throughout the nineteenth century, a fluctuating standard existed for freedom, with very different levels of freedom existing for each group, while equality decreased over time and a polarized class system was formed.
This is most highlighted by the removal of Native Americans in the south, the expansion of rights and social oppression of Blacks, and the addition of opportunities to women during the nineteenth century. Further, the creation of a class system with a radical difference between the wealthy capitalists and the poor wage workers illuminates the loss of equality that laid the foundation for the progressive movement.
While Native Americans never had the rights and freedoms of Whites, the amount of freedom or sovereignty, when considering the Indian Removal Act, that they possessed was drastically reduced by the end of the s.
To many Americans, including President Andrew Jackson, the extension of any freedom to the Indians did not even seem possible. Further, because the Indians recognized themselves as their own nations, the question of invading the sovereignty of the states was a major question, which Jackson outlined in his address to Congress, and used as an argument in favor of the Indian Removal act.
Indeed, this was not universal amongst all Native Americans. But, racist attitudes amongst most decision makers, and especially President Jackson ultimately prevailed to pass the Indian Removal Act, mandating all Indians in the south to be relocated to west of the Mississippi.
This event killed any hope that the Indians had for advocating for themselves throughout the nineteenth century and erased their freedoms until the progressive era. In contrast to Native Americans, Blacks actually saw a considerable increase in freedom after the end of the Civil War, at least officially, though the actual level of freedom and equality appeared to be much less, particularly in the South.
The passage of the thirteenth, fourteenth, and fifteenth amendments freed Blacks from slavery and prohibited any person or governments to infringe on their rights as citizens.
However, their was a great deal of debate over how many rights would be extended to freed Blacks, with the southern Democrats particularly against extension of any rights at all. In the South, state and local governments, as well as white individuals found many means to limit the freedom and equality of Blacks despite that passage of the three amendments and the Civil Rights Bill.
The most notable of these was the system of sharecropping. Whites would own a great deal of land and Blacks would work the land for a cut of the crop. However, this meant that the white farmers could dictate much of the working conditions to the Blacks.
Additionally, there was the rise of the Redeemers in the South. Women saw very little change in their level of freedom in the United States throughout the nineteenth century, however there were a few distinct developments.

The situation of women at the beginning of the nineteenth century was what it had been for the last hundred years. They were expected to take care of the home and the family, as well as bear and raise the children. All matters of money and politics was left to the husband, and under the idea of coverture, any rights that a women possessed were only through her husband.
In the Jeffersonian era of the early s, one unique development for women was the extension of republican ideals to them. In addition to this extension of republican ideals, women began to enjoy some select economic boosts, particularly the ability to seek employment in certain industries, specifically the textile industry.
However, the wages earned were never used to benefit the women, but instead to better the men of the family. Thus, the extension of economic opportunities to women did little to actually increase their equality. As the United States expanded and industrialized, a pool of labor was needed by the wealthy capital holders to build and work for low wages, which lead to a widening gap between them and their workers.An Analysis of the Market Abuse Prohibition Enforcement in the United States of America Howard Chitimira LLB LLM LLD Lecturer, Faculty of Law, North-West University and Regulation of Market Abuse: A legal and Economic Analysis () This modern idea stated that the United States of America was a new nation and “for the first time, it had been wholly free.” Many of the white men from this time period were against the change and pursued their old way of life, which prevented the newly made amendments from going into full effect.
