Rockefeller has made an impact on the industrial revolution by changing and monopolizing the oil industry to bigger and better ideas. His funding to major organizations and schools, and motivation towards younger generations to push forward with his
In Addition, many economic details were relevant with the the quantity of both coal and corn. A scene in the beginning of the film presents Scrooge as he harshly addresses Bob Cratchit because he burns out the coal to keep warm and he doesn't approve because coal is highly expensive. In England during the 1700’s, Coal was very expensive until the industry took effect in the 1800’s and factories replacing coal with Coke, a much more efficient and cheaper material during that time. During the time prior to Industrialization and during industrialization, coal productivity increased by 18%. England being one of the most dominant countries during that era and also a very wealthy country only led it to be the main seller of manufactured goods.
Many countries now produced and exported crude oil. People migrated from smaller towns to live and work in larger cities. Some built suburbs to avoid overcrowded cities. The increase in demand for more natural resources polluted the air. In the new world, one chronicler expressed at the first sight of America, that, The Air at twelve leagues’ distance smelt as sweet as a new-born garden” (let.rug.nl).
Because of this gold rush, Texas was rich and was able to greatly expand their technology and tools and advance into their new era. Document 1 shows a picture of a type of angel who is leading new technology behind her. In front of her, it shows the older technology and lifestyle fleeing. The picture represents how Texas was bringing a new change in society and made the largest technological advance for our country
The steam locomotive was a major part in the American industrial revolution making transportation easier, cheaper, and faster. The steam locomotive invention started with the steam engine. "This involves water and fire, which is used to create heat. Coal, or wood is frequently the fuel that is used to create the fire, although oil was also used. The fire is used to heat the water which in turn creates the steam that causes the wheels to turn"(Transportation History).
The railroads were the first big businesses in America, and the Pennsylvania was one of the largest of them all. Carnegie learned much about management and cost control during these years, and from Scott in particular. American railroads had become the largest companies in the world, but a new industry emerged to challenge the railroads—the age of oil. But as railroad men like Tom Scott and his protege Andrew Carnegie took on big oil. Under the condition, Rockefeller declared war on the railroads.
Things were evolved and made to make things faster. Such as iron, Cronige steel mills made it to where you can make steel 96 times faster. This made a growth in demand, and made businesses bigger. Rockefeller made oil into a more refined version called kerosene. He made a lot of money selling this refined oil.
The Gilded Age, the period of the history of the United States from the Reconstruction to the early 20th century, witnessed the development of industrialization, urbanization, the construction of great transcontinental railroads, innovations in science and technology, and the rise of big business. There were many capable leaders who were building a better future. Vanderbilt stopped at nothing to connect the nation via railroads. Rockefeller used his trademark ruthlessness to establish his oil empire. Cities were expending to the sky, this was built on the strength of Andrew Carnegie’s steel.
Texas is the largest state in the United States, and the only one to once be its own independent state, giving it the nickname “The Lone Star State.” It is bordered with Mexico, and lies next to the Gulf of Mexico. Since Texas is next to the gulf, it is home to many ports for international trade. However, with so much trade comes the risk of pollution to the gulf, which eventually reaches the shores of many beaches in Texas. One of the worst oil spills in Texas history was the Deepwater Horizon oil spill of 2010. Approximately 206 million gallons of oil were reported to have spilled into the Gulf of Mexico.
Gold Miners During the Industrial Revolution “The Mining Boom” “Bonanza!” was yelled when a large amount of valuable gold or silver was found. Gold was mostly found in California and Colorado around 1859 during the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing processes. This new deposit of gold and silver was found throughout the west about 10 years after the California Gold Rush. Colorado found a good amount of gold and silver at Pikes Peak in 1859.
