 Manufacturing Climate in the 1880s
During the 1880s, Chicago's manufacturing climate, like that of much of the industrializing world, was both booming and volatile.
Unlike the rest of the world, however, Chicago seemed to be the epicenter of the changes that accompanied the transformations that were taking place in industry, transportation, marketing, and urban development.
The first was the emergence of factories that employed thousands of workers rather than the tens or hundreds that typified manufacturing before the 1880s.

The diaries of the 1880s provided a private, direct and immediate look at the daily lives of the three authors and the work sheets of the 1920s provided a more self-conscious look at the life of each farm woman because she knew her work sheet was going to be read by others.

 The Living City | New York City >> 1880s >> 1885
The Blizzard of 1888 brought the city to a standstill as electric lines came down under the weight of the snow.
But by the 1880s stoops did little to ameliorate the problem of refuse in the streets.
The blizzard, therefore, began to galvanize support for a regular, accountable sanitary force responsible for cleaning the city streets, which would lead to the reconceptualization of garbage as a public health threat in the next decade.

 History of the1888 Reception Toilette and notes on late 1880s Fashions
The 1888 Reception Toilette pattern is taken from a 2-piece gray silk faille dress with a white silk satin neck insert and trim of gold braid.
During the late 1880s most dress fashions had tight-fitting bodices and sleeves, a long waist, a high collar, a large shelf-like bustle worn protruding from the top of the derriere, a v-shaped waistline, an asymmetrically-draped skirt, and a street-length hem.
In late 1887 and early 1888 Sarah Bernhardt wore fashions from the 1790s, the Directoire period, while starring in the play "Tosca." Within months of her debut, Paris designers introduced a new dress style loosely based on the Directoire fashions of 1790 to 1795.

 Politics of the 1870s and 1880s
Given that the two parties were nearly evenly matched in the Midwest and the nation as a whole in the 1880s, turnout for elections was especially important.
Farmers in general in the 1870s, 1880s and 1890s were determined to hold on to or regain the autonomy of the independent small producer in the new industrial economy and saw politics as a way to do just that.
During the 1880s, it was an embarrassment of riches.

 Ray Markey | Explaining Union Mobilisation in the 1880s and Early 1900s | Labour History, 83 | The History Cooperative
The period was one of considerable social and political ferment, evident in the language of class and the appeal to a working class movement evident with the mushrooming of socialist and radical political organisations, together with a burgeoning of related newspapers.
Australian workers indicated prior to the existence of the arbitration system in the 1880s that they were capable of organising at a level which far exceeded that anywhere else in the world, notwithstanding a state posture of indifference at best, and sometimes open hostility.
Even in the early 1900s the timing of the union growth surge and the impact of the legislation failed to fully coincide, and employer resistance to the legislation through litigation and other means, considerably reduced its effectiveness in assisting union growth in the short to medium term, and, in some cases, in the long term.

But the 1880s are important not only because of the ways in which the conditions of the poor, working classes were being reconciled with the tenants of the new science of bacteriology.
The conditions were also being put in place in which arguments about bacteriology were going to become much more important in the 1890s and have relevance for all classes in the City as it became more densely crowded and, with the opening of the Brooklyn Bridge in 1883, more accessible.
The 1880s also provided an important catalyst for changes in the built environment.

 The 1880s: Railroads and Segregation - Texas State Library
"Separate but equal" segregation was the law in Texas and other Southern states from the 1880s until segregation was overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court in the 1950s..
The railroad segregation issue was one of the primary concerns of African-American legislators throughout the 1880s.
In 1881, Representative R. Moore attached a relevant amendment to one bill after another African-American woman was thrown from a train after standing up for her right to sit where she wanted.

 Jessamyn's Regency Costume Companion: 1880s gown
Fortunately, 1880s hair isn't too difficult; the elaborate excesses of the 1870s had subsided, leaving a fairly smooth, neat coil of hair at the back of the head.
I simply put mine up in a French twist, which I can rely on staying up with just a large comb (which are practically the same now as they were in the 19th century, only plastic instead of tortoiseshell) and a couple of hairpins.
The one defining feature of 1880s hair is bangs - called at the time a "fringe" - and I already have bangs, so that was easy.

 Gendering the Debate over African Americans' Education in the 1880s: Frances Harper's Reconfiguration of ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In the years after the civil War, white Americans north and south debated the capacity of former slaves to be educated for citizenship, while leading African American authors (and some white supporters) used fiction, speeches, and other forms to demonstrate the capabilities of the race for full civic participation.
By the 1880s, when Radical Reconstruction had been displaced by calls for national reconciliation, this contest frequently shifted focus to the kind and degree of education most suitable for African Americans.
Some "New South" leaders began to suggest to their constituencies that making some allowances for the education of fls could bring long-term benefits to a region that clearly needed to become indu strialized.

This study examines the ways in which Mexican and Native women challenged the patriarchal traditional culture of the Spanish, Mexican, and early American eras in California, tracing the shifting contingencies surrounding their lives from the imposition of Spanish Catholic colonial rule in the 1770s to the ascendancy of Euro-American Protestant capitalist society in the 1880s.
Negotiating Conquest begins with an examination of how gender and ethnicity shaped the policies and practices of the Spanish conquest, showing that Hispanic women, marriage, and the family played a central role in producing a stable society on Mexico’s northernmost frontier.
