Ap Us History Dbq Era Of Good Feelings

898 words - 4 pages

The Era of Good Feelings was the title of the period after the war of 1812 between the years of 1815 and 1825. The accuracy of this label however, is not accurate. During this era the United States of America were in a period of economic problems, political turbulence, and a mixture of rapid expansion and division.It is hard to believe that this time period was one of “Good Feelings” with an economy that kept many people very poor while only a few were able to profit much.

This division creates disunity and breeds sectionalism among states and regions. The disunity created threatened the nation later on and could be blamed for inciting rebellion.

It influences the accuracy of being able to title this era as one of “Good Feelings”. In Document 1, it is clear that during the...
