The Interstate Commerce Act (1887) and Sherman Anti-Trust Act (1890), are two of the earlier Congressional attempts to deal with the rapid expansion and consolidation of American business during the Gilded Age.

·        What did these two pieces of legislation hope to accomplish, and why are they important?

·        Given the fact that neither of them was adequately enforced until over a decade after their passage, why did Congress choose to pass them in the first place?

 

·        Are these reasons evident in the language of the acts?
