In the late 1800s, the Industrial Revolution was brought to the United States from Great Britain. The Industrial Revolution was a time period which brought people from the rural areas to the city. Most manufacturing took place in people’s homes using home-made tools, and basic machines. Henceforth, innovation was needed to speed the process of making clothes, enhancing the transportation system, better mass production of iron and more. On the other hand, child labor sprung up a big issue during that time.
Industrial revolution is one of the most important historical phenomena in human beings ' history. It is alleged first happened in Britain in around 1700s to 1800s and then spreaded throughout the world. This paper is going to discuss the main origins, consequences of industrial revolution in Europe, how agriculture and economy aid to the emergence of industrial revolution. Besides that, this paper also applies three concepts of history including ecumenical, world and gloabal history in the rise and spread of industrial revolution. There are four key origins that lead to industrial revolution in Europe.
Technological innovations can be classified into three main categories; first the innovation of new energy sources, the innovation of military appliances and lastly the innovation of communication means. Before the industrial revolution humans used renewable and organic energies such as wind, wood…etc. As of the major increase in world population in the industrial revolution, many ecological crises come about such as energy shortage as “global energy demands began pushing against the existing local and regional ecological limits” (Strayer, 2012; 828). However, during the industrial revolution the energy crises pushed humans to think of new ways to produce energy for their factories and homes; therefore they had to start using nonrenewable inorganic energies such as natural gas, coal, and oil. This improved the quantity of energy production which solved the shortage problem.
ntroduction The term “child labor” generally refers to children who work to produce a good or a service which can be sold for money in the marketplace regardless of whether or not they are paid for their work. [ https://eh.net/encyclopedia/child-labor-during-the-british-industrial-revolution/] During the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries Great Britain became the first country to industrialize. Because of this, it was also the first country where the nature of children’s work changed so dramatically that child labor became seen as a social problem and a political issue. The child labor apprentices was began widely and increased when industrial era began especially on textile field of economy. Most of the child apprentices were
The industrial revolution was an awesome period in history. The entire world was beginning to realize the potential for resources and manufacturing and Britain was in the lead. This revolution truly changed the world, modified society, and uplifted democratic governments across the world. Great Britain and the rest of the world were never truly the same after the greatest revolution in history since the agricultural one, hundreds of thousands of years ago. Revolution is a rapid push for change within government, culture, and society.
The ‘water frame’ was an easy way to create cotton, it was able to create 128 threads at a time. It was an easier and faster way to make threads ever before. During the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries had experienced economic setbacks, but during the next few centuries had experienced dynamic development. The power loom in many cities and towns caused many places like Landshire, England power looms soared in 1813’s power looms were only 2,400 to 1829
As soon as the Civil War ended, America started to emerge as an industrial nation. It had become known as the Second Industrial Revolution which began in the mid-nineteenth century. This Second Industrial Revolution will lead to new technologies and new inventions. Industry revolutionized America because it helped inventors create technologies and inventions which will affect farmers, industrial workers, and women. In the 1800’s railroads will become one of the reasons why America was starting to revolutionize.
Starting at around the early 1800’s in America, the industrial revolution began when young mechanic Samuel Slater memorized how to build a mill from scratch. It produced so many different pieces of technology from the water frame to the use of railroads and train locomotives. These inventions and much more helped advance the human race into further and more complicated technology. Little did Samuel Slater know that his invention would start a huge progress through technology for almost a century. As mills became more successful soon machines that used mills were produced including the innovations listed in document 1.
Industrial Revolution: Transportation – Lauren Smith The rapid development of industry that occurred in Britain in the late 18th and 19th centuries, brought about by the introduction of machinery, is known as the Industrial Revolution. It was characterised by the use of steam power, the growth of factories, and the mass production of manufactured goods and services. During this period of time, many advances were made in many different areas especially transportation. Before the Industrial Revolution, transportation in Britain was extremely basic. Roads were poorly built and maintained, goods were transported on river barges but this was extremely slow and a costly exercise, the was no railway networks and were limited to wooden tracks and carriages pulled by horses which was typically unreliable and goods were broken which resulted in a dramatic loss in money for the seller and limited product for the buyer.
Early, during the 1800’s European and American factories used the water wheel to run machines. During the 19th century however, HPE for generating electricity. Irrigation and mining used mills or even waterwheels. HEP was the primary source of many new inventions to come in the future. During the 1830’s HEP led to new transportation systems such as boats, and even downhill transportation.
