The Lifetime Learning Institute at Northern Virginia Community College in Annandale recently offered members a chance to study Gilded Age Washington: Corruption, Bribery, and Falsehood. If remembered at all, the period of United States history from 1870 to 1910 remains forever tarnished by scandal, corruption and intrigue. Unregulated economic expansion generated enormous fortunes controlled by an upper class that delighted in overt, lavish displays of their wealth. Meanwhile, beneath the “gilded’ surface, distrust, dissatisfaction and disease festered within a growing underclass brutalized by oppressive working conditions and punishing poverty. Members explored the life and events of this time.
