I would like to go back in time somewhere between 1865-1918. It was the rise of the industrialization and mass immigration to the United States. It must have been so exciting to witness, first hand, this period of rapid economic growth and new prosperity. I have read many historical fiction books that take place in this era and it seemed to be an amazing time to be alive!
