The United States, between 1865-1900, had a series of important technological advances that helped the country strive toward a stronger economy and industry. Certain inventions helped progress the industry away from being focused on family farms and rural villages to connected cities with thriving businesses. The specific inventions and discoveries that made this possible were electricity, updated farm equipment and transcontinental railroads. In this time period, there was a intense presence of immigrants, the majority were from Ireland and Germany.
During the period of 1880- 1930, this was an age for development and the idea to correct the wrongs that have been done before. 1880 - 1930 had two periods in this time: the Industrial Revolution, and the Progressive era. In 1880-1930, major technological developments and the idea of Progressivism dramatically changed American life because new innovations were able to create new inventions which changed the average American’s life by increasing their productivity at work and also at home and also made new types of recreation, and Progressivism impacted Americans economically and politically by improving word conditions and also passing the Nineteenth Amendment which granted women suffrage. Major technological innovations assisted Americans
The Industrial Revolution created a faster mode of transportation, the Steam Engine. The steam engine positively affected the people in the Industrial Revolution and so did the factories built. The Industrial Revolution, itself, had helped create many new inventions that made farming, writing, and traveling more easier for the people of the revolution. Although many children and factory workers faced many problems, it eventually led to the Factory Acts and the School Sites Acts, some of the greatest outcomes of the Industrial Revolution to have positive effects on the rest of the world. The world would not be better off without the Industrial Revolution because it developed a new and faster mode of transportation and led to the Factory Acts
From the years 1900-1990, there were thousands of inventions made. All different sorts of varieties of inventions were being released, such as the automobile, which was invented in 1901 by a man named Henry Ford. Ford created the assembly line, which made it possible to create the Model T engine in only ninety-three minutes. Also, in 1901, a man named Guglielmo Marconi was the first to broadcast the first transatlantic radio signal. These inventions had an effect on the midwestern states by creating a more luxurious and extravagant lifestyle of the residents living in the midwestern states, but that does not mean that the residents of the midwestern states were living the perfect life because they weren’t.
The 1920’s was a time of new modern age. The economy of automobiles was born, the entertainment world blossomed and women had discovered new found freedom. The 1920’s definitely deserved the name of the ‘roaring twenties’. Automobiles became an important consumer product.
These inventions changed the way that people interacted with one another. An example of this is the battery-less radio, created in 1925 by Edward Samuel Rogers. This invention was extremely helpful, as the radio could be plugged into a household electrical socket, opposed to requiring cumbersome batteries. The radio was so well regarded that it was considered “…The set that marks a new era in radio” (Freeman-Shaw, Haskings-Winner 47). This invention not only secured Rogers’ place in the history of communication technology, but also allowed more Canadians to have access to a radio, as anyone with household electricity could use it.
The radio helped people in world war 1 to send and receive messages. “the earliest of radio inventions were crystal sets, meaning they were difficult to operate and use. Later the development of radios during world war 1 helped sending and receiving of radio signals much easier.” During WW1 communication and broadcasting systems
Industrialization greatly impacted the way Americans lived in the eighteenth and nineteenth century and immensely changed the course of modern day history. Without the
During the Gilded Age, workers were forced to work in dangerous conditions surrounded by heavy machinery. The rapid growth of the manufacturing industry created a great need for unskilled laborers who required little training and completed routine tasks with minimum pay. One of the most significant employers, the steel mills, often demanded a seven-day work week. Furthermore, seamstresses and factory workers worked over 12 hours a day for six days a week. Employees were denied vacation days, sick leave, unemployment benefits, or assistance for injuries suffered on the job.
One impact of technological innovations is the transcontinental railroad and the advancement in railroad businesses thanks to Cornelius Vanderbilt. Due to the power of Vanderbilt he nearly transformed transportation as they knew it. Vanderbilt had many railroads going all over the country and so much power over the railroad business. He ran a monopoly on the railroad industry while still having some competition. Vanderbilt had bought out every competitor he had and thought himself unstoppable, till one day some people at the stock market created and created "fake" stocks in a certain rail company.
Industrialization had a positively impact on U.S because Automobiles, Captain Of Industry , and light bulb and Electricity. The industrialization happened in the 1800’s. There was a lot of events that happened in this time period. Reason 1: Andrew Carnegie made old fashioned cars in the 1800’s. He taught many women and men how to drive.
This caused America to flourish with new inventions, for example the automobile, household machinery, television, etc. Even old inventions and ideas were improving, like the radio, movies, and the use of advertising. The radio, movies, driving, and buying the various new products became a part of the daily lives. These inventions created a sense of ease for daily lives in America in the 1920s. It made life, jobs, and experiences easier.
In the late nineteenth century there were many key technological developments the account for the American industrial growth. Technological developments were not the only thing that contributed to the rise of the American industry: raw materials, labor supply, entrepreneurs, federal government, and and an expanding domestic market. Although there were many contributing factors, technological development was one of the principal sources to industrial growth in the late-nineteenth century. In the late 1800’s Cyrus Field created a transatlantic telegraph cable to Europe and in the next ten year Alexander Graham Bell developed the first telephone taking the communication era to new heights.
Industrialism had profound effects on American Society, Business Owners, Workers, Farmers, and Immigrants that reshaped American Society and were both positive and negative in nature. During this time, the economy increased dramatically and city populations increased. New forms of technology were created to help the american people progress and live more comfortably. People also became more involved during this age.
These advancements came with the improvement and application of technology, a specific example of this occurred during the Industrial Revolution. The inventions and innovations that were built and made have already affected the top fields of engineering, and
