Progressive Movement

I am intended to write my research paper of Progressive Movement i.e. a movement marked by an all-encompassing and intensive change in all spheres of American life viz. political, economic and social and how Theodore Roosevelt, Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson contributed toward it.

Thesis:
