Even though the market revolution was criticized by a lot of people, it was a remarkable step towards a strong and stable economy in United States. This allowed space for more growth among the nation and each individual. Transportation and communication had a major effect on the changes that were made in America. The market revolution transformed the goals people applied to their work and their approach towards it. It turned farmers into businessmen, and it changed the relationships between buyers and sellers, employers and
The Market Revolution reshaped the economy by the Industrial, the Transportation, Communication Revolution as well as the regional differences in America and the shift in gender roles in the nineteenth century. The Market Revolution marked by three major elements the Industrial, the Transport and the Communications Revolution. The Industrial Revolution was started in England at first with the production of thread the cloth begin manufactured. Trade secrets were highly guarded by the English, however; Samuel Slater memorized the plans for the machines and traveled to new England to put these plans into a
In the 1800’s many Americans moved to cities to work in newly constructed factories. This great migration of millions of people to Eastern cities from both Europe and the continental United States, was made possible by the steam engine, powering both steamboats and railroads. The availability of cheap labour in cities revolutionized the American economy and made possible the great manufacturing booms of the late 1800’s. Other inventions of the 19th century such as the telegraph and telephone allowed for greater communication between cities connecting the country and removing communication barriers. However cities also completely ruined the environments of their respective regions by dumping waste into nearby water sources, and polluting the air of their
Industrialization after the Civil War One of the most remarkable consequences of the Civil war was the industrialization of the United States, which transformed the economy of the country. While certain industries, such as textiles and clock making saw industrialization during the first half of the nineteenth century, it was not until the Civil War that industrialization spread throughout America. The Civil War spurred the process of industrialization and encourages new production techniques that would have the greatest impact after the end of the war. Some of the significant reasons for the delay of industrialization of America after the Civil War were social, economic, political, geographic and legal reasons. The industrialization affected various groups of the society belonging to distinct races and ethnic backgrounds.
For instance, farm production, which was once done manually by hand and produced with the aim of feeding the immediate family, became commercialised. The invention of new machines such as tractors and threshing machines resulted in bigger harvests and the sale of agricultural produce for profit. The development of steam-powered machines and the popularisation of the production line in factories during this period led to more products manufactured in greater amounts for sale, steering up the cycle of demand and supply for the rapidly increasing population. It is therefore evident that the Industrial Revolution was a pivotal turning point in human history as it led to massive changes in the economy and the traditional way of living life for a great
Over time, however, things got better and ultimately, it created the America that we live in today. Industrialization led to the mass production of goods, consumerism, higher wages, more leisure time, and an increased standard of living for most. The United States of today would be a very different place if industrialization had never
City life was not the best. Cities were usually overcrowded, most immigrants lived in tenement housing. But soon urbanization picked up, and it got better, when neighborhoods formed, and people could breathe better with more space. America 's economy was and still is described as capitalism. And with the invention of the light bulb, the assembly line by Henry Ford, and the automobile, Mass production was able to support the rising economy of the U.S.
These advancements had great effects on the structure of cities at the time. Around the time of these advancements, immigrants from all over Europe and Asia decided to attempt to make lives for themselves in America. This increase in population also led to changes in the cities, making them more urban. Ultimately, many factors including technological advancements, immigration, and the new laissez-faire government led to fairly extreme changes in American cities in the late 1800s. First, technological changes affected cities drastically in the 1800s with the creation of new inventions and
Inventions had a positive impact on society’s way of living and it made their everyday lifestyles easier. Before the Industrial Revolution, over 80% of people lived in rural places. After the Industrial Revolution, more people were living in urban areas. This is called urbanization. The middle class also emerged during this time period.
The romanticism was the response to the Industrial Age. That movement began in America from 1820 ’s to 1870’s. Washington Irving was part of that movement which began in America after Revolutionary War. They tried to separate them from the rest of the world and create a country as a nation. They used their chance of individuality and creativity, and they addressed economic social and many other concerns by their writings.
