Book Description:

Until the close of the 19th century, many children in America were employed in farming, mills and mines or sold newspapers and fruits and vegetables on the streets. The crusaders of the Progressive Era believed child labour was an evil that maimed the children, exploited the poor and suppressed adult wages. This explores the battle for and against child labour that was fought in the press as well as state and federal legislatures.
