Farmers responded to industrialization by creating the Granger movement which allowed for the farmers to work cooperatively to help each other. Through this movement farmers were able to pull resources together to buy the items needed and working collectively to stop paying for the prices of silos from their owners, and to purchase stores which cut out the middlemen. These profits were then divided among the members of the Grange. After a while the Grange lost power in favor of the Farmer’s Alliance which sought to bring reform to the national level. The Farmer’s Alliance wanted to bring reform to big businesses through national legislation such as a setting rate for freight lines on the railroad and government funded loans to the farmers for equipement.
The British Empire profited from slavery in the eighteenth century, but fought to abolish slavery in the nineteenth century. For many people, the British Empire meant loss of lands, discrimination and prejudice. Such a big empire had lots of everlasting impacts; a lot of them positive. The British Empire took science and technology across many parts of the world. They built railways, bridges and canals that helped improve communications in other territories.
President Woodrow Wilson was the last of the Progressive Presidents and as such caused great economic, political and social change. He served between 1913 and 1921 during which he imposed economic change through reforms, both national and international political change and a change in the role of women, giving them the right to vote. The effects of Wilsons presidency created abundant change within American society that had long lasting impacts. Political change was imminent in Wilsons second term as he was given emergency presidential power to, in some cases, bypass Congress, to speed up the law-making process. For example, he imposed the Selective Services Act in 1917 which authorised conscription in the US so that the military could be built up quickly and would not have to rely wholly on volunteers; according to Khan Academy this was well received by the American public as they were incredibly patriotic and believed it was their responsibility to support their nation, as such few men dodged.
The aftermath of the Civil War caused drastic transformations among the American people between the years 1860 and 1880. Of these changes rose the issues of political and social relations within the nation. The issues of political and social relationships arose among several different groups of people, causing these relationships to drastically change. Through the transformations of public liberty, right of succession, and slavery, the Civil War and it's inevitable aftermath was able to alter the political and social relationships that had been instilled in the fabric of America before the times of 1860. The southern definition of public Liberty in opposition to the northern definition of Liberty transformed the political relationship between the American government and south in the aftermath of the Civil War.
One of the major arguments for Indian removal were that due to an increase in cotton production. Jackson wanted the Indians removed so their land could be used to grow cotton. More cotton meant more goods which lead into a better economy. Early in the 19th century the United States was growing rapidly into the lower south. Growing down south was a problem because Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chickasaw and Seminole were settled there.
There was also a lot of advances during this time. “America entered the 19th Century as an agricultural economy but by the end was an industrial powered nation.” (Brockman, 2017) A lot of the advancements and changes that occurred modernized the theatre and helped make the productions more entertaining. Theatre and circuses were important to the sensationalism of the 1800’s because of the excitement of having an American impact or touch on the society
The Industrial Revolution, which took place from the 18th-19th centuries rural societies in Europe and America became industrial and urban. Before the Industrial Revolution manufacturing was often done in people’s homes, using hand tools or simple machines. Industrialization created a shift to powered machines, factories and mass production. The iron and textile industries, along with the steam engine, played certain roles in the Industrial Revolution, which also saw improved ways of transportation, communication and banking. While industrialization brought about an increased volume and variety of manufactured items and an improved standard of living for some, it also resulted in often bad employment and living conditions for the poor.
The main goal of this group was to improve the working and living conditions for farmers. They wanted to help farmers economically because the debts of farmers increased greatly due to the increase to monopolistic powers of big businesses, and banks (Getchell). In order for Garland’s short stories to be effective the stories need to fit a few criteria. The families represented need to be suffering economically, such as low income, high mortgages, and unfair trade. All of those aspects had some sort of impact on farmers of the late 1800’s.
Just as was taught in class, a main reason for the Dust Bowl was World War I. Production demands rose greatly during World War I which meant that more land was being plowed and overplanted to keep up with the needs. A common idea was that tearing up the prairie grass on the farm land would help the soil receive more moisture. However, the grass was an evolutionary mean to keep the soil from blowing away, as was seen later. Then, when World War I ended, the demand for wheat and other crops fell as did the prices.
Some of these were short-term effects, and others were long-term effects. The Columbian exchange is responsible for mass production of silver coins, which caused inflation; trade of corn and potatoes; which changed farming habits of Europeans; destruction of forests and plains in the New World, which caused Native Americans to change their hunting habits; and spread diseases, which caused a decline in Native American population. This is important because all of these effects of the Columbian exchange played a role in developing modern America. The Columbian exchange has helped shape America and without it, the America that stands today may be completely
Now they had land selling offices in the west that would allow to buy in time making it more affordable for individuals. He realized that the west needed improvement which included roads, canals, and transportation. The overcrowding in the east is what lead the need of expanding farm land to the west. The chances of Jackson in Unites States depended on revolution. The eighteenth century was a time of social and economic changes brought on by Market Revolution (Schultz, 2017).
After the civil war, government estiabled different policies. Changes occurred one by one. Between 1860-1900, government policies position the farmers and ranchers in the west not only progress on individual opportunity by giving farmers more land opportunity and educational opportunity, but also setback on individual opportunity by giving farmers poor land resource and less market securing credit. First, government policies made a progress in increasing individual opportunity which specifically about land distribution and education system among the farmers between 1860-1900. For land distribution, one of the policies was the Homestead Act.
The American economy was greatly influenced by advancement in the 1800’s, which caused many changes in society and regional identities. Some of these advancements were in the areas of technology, agriculture and commerce. In this period we saw inventions such as the sewing machine, the waltham-lowell factory system, and railroads sweep the nation, and drastically alter the United States economy. The first advancement that impacted the nation was the sewing machine. The person who was first credited for creating the sewing machine was an american, Waler Hunt.
With this change it meant also that the farmers and others was buying what they didn’t produce, making many producers and consumers alike (Schultz, p.170, 2009). This time mainly focused on the commercialized agriculture and changed the way of life for most Americans. The Market Revolution
