This thought-provoking study of the Progressive movement traces its rise and decline in Minnesota, its link with the Granger, Farmers Alliance, Populist, and Nonpartisan League traditions, and the tragic divisions created by World War I--especially the loyalty issue.

Progressivism focused the nation's attention on attempts to reform its political and economic systems. Against this backdrop of national and internationsl events, historian Carl H. Chrislock records the rise and decline of the movement in Minnesota, where Progressivism had many links with earlier Granger, Farmers Alliance, and Populist traditions. Clearly written and thought provoking, this book also tells the stories of the Bull Moose campaign of 1912, strikes on the Mesabi Range, and the painful divisions of loyalty before and during World War I.
