Frederick Jackson Turner and the "Gospel of Wealth"
Since its publication in 1893, Frederick Jackson Turner's Frontier Thesis has become one of the most pervasive and influential models of American history. This paper will assume that Turner's premise is true-that American culture and world-view have been profoundly affected by the frontier-and from there will attempt to investigate exactly how the frontier became such an influential force in American history, using historical evidence outside that which Turner mustered.
