One hundred years ago, a spirit of reform swept America. Led by the progressives, people who believed in clean government and that government had to help solve society's problems, the movement elected representatives to Congress and to statehouses around America. Progressives passed legislation aimed at improving working conditions, breaking up business monopolies, creating welfare programs for the poor, and assuring pure food and drug standards. Businesses hurt by this new legislation often opposed the new laws and challenged them in court.
