The market revolution had a tremendous impact on many regions in the U.S., most notably the South and Northeast. The market revolution is a term used by historians to describe the expansion of the marketplace that occurred between 1815 and 1830, prompted mainly by major transportation improvements and various unique inventions to connect distant communities together for the first time. The South developed and thrived mainly from the cotton gin and the expansion of slavery. The Northeast flourished and bloomed from the factory system, interchangeable parts, transportation improvements, and women in the work force. The market revolution impact on the South and Northeast brought about widespread economic growth yet affected the regions differently, the South shifted from subsistence farming to commercial farming and the Northeast grew in mechanization and industrialization.
The War of 1812 lasted from 1812-1815, and was fought between the fledgling nation of the United States of America against the British Empire, including its North American colonies, as well as its Native American allies. The war was brought about by many reasons: The British War against Napoleonic France led to a paralysis of American trade, the impressment of U.S. merchant sailors into the Royal Navy which further impeded the American economy, British support of Native American tribes’ opposition towards American westward expansion, as well as outrage over affronts against national honor, notably due to British actions at sea. However, after nearly three years of war, no conclusive winner was determined.

These are the 3 most beautiful things this culture's ever created.” This quote is not just an accurate prediction, but could be said to be true know. All three: the constitution, jazz, and baseball are talked about now by historians. While still an opinion, baseball is beautiful, and had impacted the lives of Americans for generations.

The Market Revolution generated a drastic change in the United States economy and altered gender barriers while at the same time accomplishing this in a provocative manner. This economic boom occurred around the first half of the 19th Century. The economic boom was achieved by inventions such as a transcontinental railroad system which resulted in a better transportation system which improved trade and the cotton gin which sped up the rate of removing seeds from cotton fiber. However like what the great Hugo said, “The brutalities of progress are called revolutions. When they are over we realize this: that the human race has been roughly handled, but that it has advanced”. That is exactly what happened with this revolution in fact and the progress
The American Industrial Revolution was a century-long transition from a culture dependent on agriculture to a culture with a more industrial based economy. This revolution marked a major turning point in history, and almost every aspect of daily life was influenced in some way. Many factors led up to this important period in history including mercantilism enforced by the british, which led to the Embargo Act, the greater opportunities available in industry that offered better wages and hours, and the various factory labor and entrepreneurial innovation, such as in the Slater Mill. Each of these things- war, opportunities, and innovations- individually aided in the development of the American Industrial Revolution.
The War of 1812 was caused by multiple economic and political conflicts within North America and Europe. While the battles were contained to Europe, the Napoleonic Wars created economic alterations in the United States due to changing trade policies from Great Britain later influencing the Embargo Act of 1807 and the Non-Intercourse Acts. Regardless of the new trade restrictions, dealings between Great Britain and North Americans continued leaving Native Americans armed. It was not until 1811 when Henry Clay, John Calhoun, and the War Hawks approached Congress for a declaration of war against Great Britain. The War of 1812 continued for two years concluding with the Treaty of Ghent in 1814. Among the few benefits of the War of 1812 came an
1. What was the Transportation Revolution and how did it effect the U.S. in a positive way?
The complete technological innovation in transportation and cotton production was one of the most important points of the market revolution which lead to the emancipation of the slaves. The market revolution benefited the United States because it radically transformed the economy. Americans were no longer limited to local markets and its merchants thought beyond the limits. Commonly used now on the costs and benefits.
The American Industrialization was in the late 1800’s making many things to improve the economy. The American Industrialization was caused by multiple factors, some of the factors included a growing population, a willing work force, high tariffs, among many more. These effects made people willing to work at lower wages so they can get jobs and buy American made goods. There were many outcomes of the Industrial Revolution, both positive, like improving people's lives, and negative effects, like exploitation of workers.
America's economy has changed dramatically since its inception over 240 years ago. In the beginning, European settlers , for economic gain, came to the New World and created an economy that relied heavily on agriculture (rice, wheat, flour, tobacco, etc.) Innovations in the 19th century and the expansion of land led to economic growth and marked a shift in how the economy functioned. Furthermore, economic legislation advocated and passed by lawmakers sped the progression of change from a regional economy to the national economy that exists today. In short, America's economy has undergone a series of changes that has transformed it into the wealthiest nation on earth today.
One of the most remarkable consequences of the Civil war was the industrialization of the United States, which transformed the economy of the country. While certain industries, such as textiles and clock making saw industrialization during the first half of the nineteenth century, it was not until the Civil War that industrialization spread throughout America. The Civil War spurred the process of industrialization and encourages new production techniques that would have the greatest impact after the end of the war. Some of the significant reasons for the delay of industrialization of America after the Civil War were social, economic, political, geographic and legal reasons. The industrialization affected various groups of the society belonging to distinct races and ethnic backgrounds. It also led to the involvement of child labor and people belonging to all genders. It was only after the Civil War that the nation’s railroads became extensive enough to distribute the excess product created by the industrialized factories across different regions.
