I don't have much to say about these chapters. I thought the one on Indian removal was really illuminating. I knew about the role of the US government pushing Native Americans westward and breaking treaties left and right, but I didn't realize that the army and "contractors" were involved in relocating them. This story of a group of people being singled out and moved around to satisfy some other group really resonates, and I'm sure we can all think of other examples of groups of people who have been treated the same way - in our country and in others.

I also found it interesting to learn more about how industrialization created forces to keep women inside the home.
