http://www.aier.org/ Put in the starting and end dates to determine and say your salary to see what it is now if you kept up with inflation. For example in 1913. the bankers snuck back in the money printing machine of the Federal Reserve Bank banned by President Andrew Jackson who was a true populist President. Apparently the new biography on Jackson is quite good, but I have to look it up.
More of the history now being written is to correct the lies and distortions by some historians. Texas wants to go back to the Robber Barons in the late 19th century when their Supreme Court made corporations people so a railroad could cut tax free through the town of Santa Clara in California. The crooked Corporate Supreme Court headed by Roberts who always made decisions in favor of corporations. Obama did not vote for him because he bothered to look up his record and Alito's record. Even I knew they were strictly supporting Big Business and not the rest of the country by changing laws to suit corporations.
