From the late 19th century into the 21st century, technological and cultural advancements transformed the world into a new and modern place. These advancements changed the way people lived, worked, and thought about themselves and the world. The combination of all these changes continues to produce what we know as the modern world. Will Rogers grew up in the late 1800s riding horses and roping cattle. While working on the family ranch, he developed an exceptional roping ability, and the attention it gained sparked his career in show business. After adding jokes to his roping act, Rogers' popularity soared, and he began to perform all over the country. Known by his down-to-earth personality and witty sense of humor, Rogers became a star of stage, film, and radio.
