What are the key locations age of reform era?

Historians have labeled the period 1830–50 an “age of reform.” At the same time that the pursuit of the dollar was becoming so frenzied that some observers called it the country’s true religion, tens of thousands of Americans joined an array of movements dedicated to spiritual and secular uplift. There is not yet agreement as to why a rage for reform erupted in the antebellum decades. A few of the explanations cited, none of them conclusive, include an outburst of Protestant Evangelicalism, a reform spirit that swept across the Anglo-American community, a delayed reaction to the perfectionist teachings of the Enlightenment, and the worldwide revolution in communications that was a feature of 19th-century capitalism.
Hope this helped.

Write one full paragraph in answer to each question to demonstrate your understanding of the story. 2. Achilles is the greatest warrior in the Iliad: He has matchless strength and skill in battle, noble birth, and the gods' favor, so he should have great pride. But Achilles has too much pride. What has Achilles been willing to sacrifice for the sake of his pride

Achilles was willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of his pride because he did not listen to the advice of others and protect his achilles heel, the only place where someone could kill him.  Achilles couldn't be killed except if you were to shoot an arrow into his heel, so by not protecting his heel, Achilles pride got in the way which lead to his death.  He ended up getting shot by a poisoned arrow in his heel and died.  Achilles was willing to sacrifice his life for the sake of pride.  He sacrificed something huge for something so small.
