ⓘ Gilded Generation (Strauss–Howe theory)

The Gilded Generation is the name given by sociologists to describe the generation of American people, born 1822–1842. It is an identified cohort within the Strauss–Howe generational theory.

They came of age amid rising national tempers, torrential immigration, commercialism is rampant, conspicuous consumerism, reduced admission to the College and economic disputes. This led to a distrust of fanaticism and institutional participation, shifting the focus to the life of materialism. As young adults, many of them did fate in the border towns-boom.

Members of this generation were also of age at the time of the American Civil war.
