There were many issues in the United States moving into the 1800s. There were issues with housing and overcrowding in cities because of immigration and an industrial boom. Working conditions in factories needed to be upgraded for the safety of the workers. Schools and prisons were lacking in resources and materials needed to provide a safe environment.
