Summary
"As the nation grew industrially, man became more acutely aware of the loss of his economic independence. Farmers were among the earliest victims of the rapid spread of industrial Capitalism that followed the Civil War. For almost half a century following the Civil War (1870-1912) various popular reform movements south to alter the existing economic situation, and each in its own particular way was out of step with industrial capitalism. Monopoly (the most extreme form of economic concentration) had destroyed the social-civic contract among groups within society, and the people hoped anti-monopoly laws, rigidly enforced, could right that wrong. Most anti-trust activity took place not at the national level, but rather at the state level. Prior to 1893 small agrarian producers dominated the anti-trust movement, but they had the assistance of small retailers, workers, and urban consumers. After the depression of the 1890's, the balance within the popular anti-trust coalition shifted. Consumers, thereafter, dominated the anti-trust crusade (as well as the broader Progressive movement of which it was a part) until its demise
