Question 1: The term Muckrackers became famous after April 15, 1906, when the president of the United States Theodore Roosvelt used it in a speech referring to a character in "Pilgrims progress" who could look no way but downward with a muckrake in his hands and was interested only in raking filth explaining that "the men with the muck rakes are often indispensable to the well being of society; but only if they know when to stop raking the muck".

The Civil War had a major impact on literature during this time period. The horrors of the war shook people up and created a more pessimistic outlook on life. This was one of the first wars that was photographed so people had images to look at even if they were not involved in the war itself. The saying "a picture is worth a thousand words" is definitely applicable in ths case.
Realism came into play in large part out of need as a result of the war. People had something to write about but did not at the time have the right "tool" to do it. Realism/realistic novel was that tool. Romanticism, which came before realism, did not lend itself to write about the new perspective of society post Civil War.
