Best Answer

The Presidents during the gilded age are referred to as "forgettable" because America was going through its Industrial Revolution at that time, and the powerful business leaders at the time (Andrew Carnegie, John Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, etc) dominated the nation rather than the government. Additionally, there was much corruption going on throughout America, and the forgettable Presidents did not do a successful job of properly eliminating this corruption. Thus, they are deemed forgettable.
