He als invented the first power plant. Another invention that highly impacted the Gilded Age was the telephone by Alexander Graham Bell. The telephone made communication faster and easier. The Bessemer Process was also created to make steel production much faster and more efficient. It sped up steel production by 96%.
From the late 18th century to the early 19th century, the Industrial Revolution in the United States created advancements in the fields of manufacturing and technology. One of the most influential innovations that emerged from this period was the telegraph. Invented by Samuel F. B. Morse, the telegraph transformed how information was transmitted by allowing messages to be sent and received over long distances. The invention influenced many sectors of the economy, including warfare. Most significantly, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln was the first to deploy this technology to gain a strategic advantage over an opponent.
Patriotism was present in European societies long ago but nationalism was invented to reinforce the cultural and linguistic unity of people. The introduction of the printing press got rid of the supreme power of the church and the pope. Latin was no longer the universal language and local languages began to grow. Language plays a huge role in unifying a people so this also played a role in the rise of nationalism. After the spread of the Enlightenment ideas of self-determination of the nation and the general participation of all its members in the politics of a state, nationalism soon became an irresistible political force.
The Great Change The Industrial Revolution represented great change, from the year 1760 to 1820-1840. This movement began from Great Britain and it affected the way people lived. Some inventors that contributed to the process were James Watt and his steam engine (Watt’s Steam Engine), John McAdam (road transportation), and finally George Stephenson and his son Robert Stephenson (The Liverpool- Manchester Railroad). The question asked was which set of inventions caused the greatest change and what were some pros and cons of the inventions? Throughout the essay this will be answered, as it will be talking about the inventors and inventions and the pros and cons of the inventions.
When Benjamin was an apprentice for his brother’s newspaper company, he began writing under the pseudonym Silence Dogood. The articles became very popular and everyone wanted to know who was writing them. Silence Dogood was just the beginning. Benjamin Franklin founded universities, the post office, made the foreign policy of the new America, drafted the Declaration of Independence and Constitution, invented the Franklin stove and bifocals, and made advances in science with electricity. Benjamin Franklin was a positive influence that still affects us today.
PREPARATION My biology hero, Joseph Priestley, really impacted the world. He impacted the world by discovering oxygen, inventing sparkling water, and helping his colleagues contribute to electricity. Many people do not appreciate and recognize him as much as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Benjamin Franklin, etc. Joseph Priestley showed his intelligence as an child by studying math, logic, metaphysics, and philosophy. He also fluently spoke six languages.
It baffles me how everything in the universe could come together so perfectly, with such symmetry and such complexity. It’s very interesting to read or hear about someone’s opinion on the subject, which is why I really liked this book. The facts in the book are extremely thought-provoking, and have taught me many interesting things, including simple facts about simple things, to facts and theories about how everything was formed, and how everything works together. I have learned and thought about so many more things with this book than any other book I have read. The book is related to science because it discusses a lot of physics, science, math, and some psychology.
Ben Franklin left a long lasting legacy of the founding fathers. He showed Americans that if you try you can do anything that you want to create. He is certainly a hero of change because he invented many things that helped us back then and now. He also shows Americans about electricity. Perhaps if people were more like Franklin we would be very smart and could create things that we thought we could
He was able to do things people only dreamed of. “In Philadelphia, he helped launch the city’s first police force, the first volunteer fire company, the first fire insurance firm, the first hospital, the first public library, and the academy that became the first institution of higher learning (the University of Pennsylvania).” (Powell p 2) Benjamin Franklin is credited with many of his inventions as well as his writings and contributions to society. Just about each of his inventions could be considered the most impactful developments in American history. Some of his most renowned inventions include bifocal spectacles, the Franklin stove, and the increased basis for understanding electricity. Most modern day technology might not be where they are today without the help of Benjamin
The books he read while he was young were handwritten and very expensive. Also, handwritten books took a long time to make. Johannes introduced Europe to printing. A new way to print and make books came about when Johannes Gutenberg was growing up. That new way was called block-printing.
