These raw materials were exploited for the benefit of the population because it demonstrated how these resources speak quickly and rapidly in England. Along with that, England had a trade base in their harbour and a Royal Navy that protected merchants and private traders. This allowed England to obtain maritime and colonial power in which explained how they had access to the environment. Documents 1 and 4 show how the population reacted to the resources and how they used them efficiency, which caused an advantage in England, since these raw materials were necessary for the Industrial
Quickly after, it was a sudden technological transformation in America. The Industrial Revolution was the transition to new manufacturing which started in Europe. Being influenced by plantation owners and their businesses others in Europe decided it was a time for change and new ideas started to emerge. There was a rise of wage labor with the help of the Industrial Revolution which helped benefit each group of people, money wise. In essence, with the discovery of the New World it helped shape the way it is now.
The market revolution had a tremendous impact on many regions in the U.S., most notably the South and Northeast. The market revolution is a term used by historians to describe the expansion of the marketplace that occurred between 1815 and 1830, prompted mainly by major transportation improvements and various unique inventions to connect distant communities together for the first time. The South developed and thrived mainly from the cotton gin and the expansion of slavery. The Northeast flourished and bloomed from the factory system, interchangeable parts, transportation improvements, and women in the work force. The market revolution impact on the South and Northeast brought about widespread economic growth yet affected the regions differently, the South shifted from subsistence farming to commercial farming and the Northeast grew in mechanization and industrialization.
The Industrial Revolution was an increase in machinery that helped to produce goods within the textile industry. It started in England in the 1700’s. Beginning in the middle of the eighteenth century, machines did this and other jobs as well. It also greatly improved farming methods. The Industrial Revolution began because England is abundant in natural resources, people left to that area for jobs, and inventions made it easier to perform those jobs.
It helped spread imperialism by the telegraph allowing people to talk long distances. “Bessemer process allowed them to build railroads and bridges(Doc C). This invention helped people deliver and send off products around the world . Economic helped pay for it to get build and they make money off off selling off the products. It was a better driving force because Europeans benefited from from the new technologies and made them some what rich.
They were in need of work, so they went to the city. Later urban population kept gradually increasing until it reached 41 percent by 1851. The duration of the agricultural revolution, Britain developed mechanisms to lead its way to the industrial revolution. Series of little drastic changes, benefits from profitable trading, and feeding the population made it possible. The agricultural revolution set the stage for the industrial revolution because raw materials, workers, merchant marine, and geography had some sort of start in
Thanks to locomotives, more towns were built due to the fast and efficient transportation of building materials. This meant the population could easily spread rather than focus on few particular cities. It also significantly improved mining. The steam locomotive had may freights that carried resources to different places easily. Transportation of course was the most beneficial.
The embargo of 1807 reduced the amount of desperately needed foreign goods. To compensate for this deficit, enhanced manufacturing became necessary, seen most notably in the Lowell System in the Northeast. The inventions of Francis Cabot Lowell allowed the Boston manufacturing company to coalesce all of these processes and procedures in the facility at Waltham. With peace, New England became a textile mill center (Borneman 259). This progression of manufacturing led to a larger middle class, as people found the desire to buy luxury goods for themselves once again, leading to economic enhancement.
For example, factories and machines allowed for a better efficiency in the manufacturing process, by reducing the time and labor that was involved in the production goods, resulting in cheaper goods. Another benefit of the Industrial Revolution had on the West was the improvement of transportation and communication. Transportation of raw materials and finished goods over long distances became easier due to the development of waterways, roads, and railroads. Communication was also greatly improved during the Industrial Revolution because of the creation of the Telegraph in the mid 1840s. By 5875, telegraph cables had stretched across thousands of miles of ocean and as a result, the Universal Postal Union had been able to facilitate the transmission of mail between foreign countries.
The American Revolution is arguably the turning point of American history as it resulted in somewhat of a significant, positive change in politics, economics, and society as a whole. However, from 1775 to 1800, the effects of the revolution on the American society were subtle as most principles glorified by revolutionists contradicted the examples set forth by colonial reality. Perhaps most alike to revolutionary beliefs was the American economy and how it participated in free trade or encouraged the independence of hard labor. Politically, the states did apply Enlightenment and republican ideas as promised, but more often than not, the benefits of such ideas were limited to rich, land-owning, protestant, white men. This glorification of
In addition, he wanted to control the trade against Spain and France. Jefferson wanted the country to be united through a system of trade in order to boost the economy and the community (“Thomas Jefferson 's Vision for the Lewis and Clark Expedition”)(“The History of Transportation in the United States”). The waterway was instrumental to the impact of the American Industrial Revolution and the
The colonists depended on Great Britain to provide them with the manufactured goods they were accustomed to back in Europe. However this was not a one sided relationship, the British government depended on the resources found in the colonies to help the British economy improve. The British economy partially relied on the resources from the colonies for them to produce manufactured goods, and then sell them back to the colonies. This relationship mutually benefited both participants because the colonists needed the manufactured goods and Britain needed the resources. Not only was this aspect of the relationship beneficial, but it also enriched the economy of both groups.
After the Civil War, the American Industrial Revolution made the Americans the most industrialized people in the world. This economic phenomenon was unprecedented in history. There were several factors that led the American economic prowess and prosperity. The Americans were blessed with natural resources. A liberal immigration policy insured a steady work force.
During this time, population greatly increased around the world due to the improvements in technology, medicine, as well as the spread of crops after the Columbian Exchange. Population increase and urbanization led to the Industrial Revolution in Britain. Britain was the perfect place for the birth of the Industrial Revolution for it had raw materials (iron, coal), a stable government, and was close to water. In a matter of years, the Industrial Revolution had spread around the world to places such as Germany, Russia, Japan, and the United States, creating trade focused on manufacturing goods such as cotton textiles, and lead to the inventions of the railroad, steam engine, telegraph, and steamboat. Trade among the Atlantic Basin was no longer focused on cash crops and agricultural products, but shifted to new technologies and manufactured products created because of the Industrial Revolution, with Latin America as an exception, for it did not become
