By 1872, the Houston and Central Texas Railroad was compeleted. The additoon of the railline fueled further growth in the area. In 1873, Plano was incorporayed with a population nearing 500 people. The small town flourished over the coming decades. By 1900, the town had more than doubled its size, and by the middle of the 20th century, the city of Plano was flourishing.
Nathan Huot Chapter 22 Notes Causes of the Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution was caused by economic development, population growth, agricultural revolution, expansion of trade, and an openness to innovation. The population in Europe rose exponentially with the fastest growth occurring in England and Wales where the population rose from 5.5 million in 1688, to 9 million in 1801, and 18 million by 1851. The Agricultural Revolution, which helped the innovations in manufacturing in the Industrial Revolution, was a revolution in farming that provided food for the city dwellers and forced poorer peasants off the land. In Europe, increasing production by traditional ways was a solution to the increasing demand that accompanied population
Due to the growth in jobs and economy, The Second Industrial Revolution was born. For example, Eric Foner, the author of Give me Liberty stated,“the country enjoyed abundant natural resources, a growing supply of labor, an expanding market for manufactured goods, and the availability of capital for investment….”(Foner, 2014, page 593). The new territories that the United States acquired after the Civil War gave Americans motivation to innovate their country through the industrial industry. Jobs such as factory production, mining and railroad construction were all in high demand and gave thousands of unemployed Americans and immigrants employment. During The Second Industrial Revolution, employers
Trains helped and worked in various ways during the 1800’s. Railroads were helping the economy surge forward. As the system grew, farmers and manufacturers could ship goods further. Railroads tied the communities together and helped cities grow. Early engines had three main parts the boiler, cylinder, and condenser.
That is when locomotives became popular in United states. The reason locomotives became popular was because of its speed and power. It became so popular, in 1840 railroad companies laid about 2,800 miles of track. Which at that time, that was the more than existed. Once locomotives came out, railroad fever began to spread.
In these years 2000, 2010 and 2016 we see the growing Democratic trend from the influx of New York City liberals. Conclusion Between these two counties we can draw some interesting comparisons and contrasts. Both Lawrence and Monroe Counties were both created by the subdivision of two existing parts of two original counties. Comparisons that the initial demand of manufacturing and the industry helped to raise the population of these areas due to the increasing job force. The railroad, obviously, was the main structure that was able to bridge the two areas
These new forms of transportation shaped the United States into the place that it is today. Before the 1800s, there were two early roads, Forbes and Wilderness Road. In 1811, the National Road known as Cumberland Road was built to reach Western settlements, because they needed a road to ship farm products that connect East and West. The National Road passed thousand of wagons and coaches. John F. Stover states in American Railroads, “The rich agricultural production of the country, the small but expanding factories of eastern cities, and the largely untapped natural resources of the nation-all of these called for improvements in transport.”(Stover1) Stover said that transportation was important because of getting goods
Before the American Civil War, both the Northerners and Southerners states were making economic advances. The railway allowed for the formation of a communication system that was national. The availability of railroads made the settlements of the western states easier. Immigration had a steady increasing rate and economy was booming for the North. They also discovered mineral resources that boosted the iron and textile industries of the North.
Diego Pitones Mrs. Homon Freshman English, 8 19 March 2018 Industrial Revolution One may wonder how Britain’s Industry and Economy grew largely during the Victorian Era. The answer is the telegraph. Communications in the 1800s advanced rapidly within the United Kingdom because of the creation of the telegraph. Railroads were constructed, which then assisted the spread of this new found technology. Many people including William Cooke, Charles Wheatstone, Samuel Morse, and more helped the idea of the telegraph grow along the way.
Between 1865 and 1900, immigration, government action, and technology impacted the social, cultural, and economic realms of the American Industrial worker. Immigration increased greatly to America because the industry was booming, and news of this new, industrial America was spreading throughout Europe. The government took actions to help the average industrial worker, such as the Chinese Exclusion Act, the Interstate Commerce Act, and the Hatch Act. Technology affected the industrial worker through inventions, reinvented landscapes, and convenience. Immigration largely affect the American industrial workers in many ways.
As World War II was coming to a close, the United States went from a depression to a thriving economy. The war brought prosperity, and in the postwar period the United States became the world 's richest country.

As more and more Americans were becoming a part of the middle-class, the United States economy was growing. Economic growth had many affects on American life such as rising living standards, agricultural hardships, and a newly emerging American culture.
