A spectacular and sweeping revolution that illuminated Europe in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Industrial Revolution existed as a distinguishing event that changed the course of Europe for centuries to come. The Industrial Revolution is summed up as the period in Europe in which the growth of technological innovation sparked improvements in the European way of production. Large factories opened to mass-produce textiles, and the new steam engine allowed mines to operate more efficiently. The Industrial Revolution, moreover, completely transformed the European way of life. Despite the revolution’s many successes, its core reveals a darker.
The entry of European settlers on the eastern shore of the US which was an intensely populated region by Native Americans, sustained a government fear including broad clash. This "Indian Issue" originated from the failure of the racial social orders to exist together with each other in a similar group. In light of the "Indian Issue" the United States ' Government advanced in setting up reservations. The landscapes would be only claimed and occupied by the Native Americans.

The 1832 Reform Act, or Great Reform Act, was passed to increase voting rights, to provide correct representation in the House of Commons of the British Parliament, and to dispel the fear of revolution. Leading up to the 19th century, not many people had the right to vote, and many people believed that it was time that all men deserved the right to vote. This belief led to the publics call for parliamentary reform. Voting rights wasn’t the only existing problem at the time, because the industrial revolution had changed the distribution of the population, where more people started to gather in the cities, causing rapid growth in industrial cities. This caused a problem for Parliament, because before the Industrial revolution people were generally evenly spread across the country.
The United States experienced great changes of immigration from the 1880s to 1920. More immigrants were coming into America during this period. There were many reasons motivating immigrants to journey to America. There were different reasons that led immigrants to come into the United States. For example some came running away from religious persecution, other for oppression, and economic difficulties.

This wave of new immigrants started from 1880 and ended in 1914, the start of the WWI, and mainly consisted of people from southern and eastern Europe, including Italians, Hungarians, Russians and Greeks (Aboukhadijeh 2). To what extent did these immigrants assimilate into American culture is always a controversial topic.

When people realized how terrible working conditions really were, unions began to form. Unionization is the act of people joining together for similar beliefs. During the late 1800s, unions gave people hope that things would get better. The labor unions presented forced government officials to notice problems in the system because they demanded attention. The whole point of the labor unions is to express the dissatisfaction of people to help sway public opinion and the minds of government officials.
In other words the first generation of Hispanics who immigrated to the United States find it difficult to abandon their culture and their roots because their culture is how they were raised and grew up in their countries and their roots always show them where they come from, so they try to avoid the idea of adopting American culture and well not be part of another culture in America. In the article “Immigrants Shunning Idea of Assimilation” by William Branigin mentions how difficult is for many hispanics come to united States and try to assimilate a new culture.The author mentions that even though Hispanics obtain American citizenship they still feel as Hispanic ; some Hispanics today tend to believe that to be part of American culture they must be similar to a white person, so because they do not look like a white person, they do not feel tempted to acquire the Americanization; they feel that because they are not equal to them it means that assimilation is not directed toward them. Branigin complains that “"It's difficult to adapt to the culture ," said Maria Jacinto, 32, who moved to the United States 10 years ago with her husband, Aristeo Jacinto, 36.” ( Branigin 1) Basically Branigin is saying that is difficult to abandon their cultures and adopt a new
