The three innovations discussed were the automobile, the telephone, and the lightbulb. These innovations allowed travelling and the transporting of goods to be very easily accomplished, made communication between other people simpler and more efficient, and allowed for better and safer ways of lighting to be established. The automobile affected midwestern farmers by allowing midwestern farmers to be able to transport their goods to other cities or to new markets. It affected middle-class urban residents by allowing them to travel to other places more often. The automobile made factory workers have to work harder to meet the expectations of their boss because the automobile could ship out goods made from the factory more quickly.
This was bringing change into the economic and technological world. One of the inventions was the flying shuttle. The flying shuttle is machine that allowed people who weave to weave much wider fabrics. The flying shuttle could also be mechanised, which led to automatic machines looms. It made weaving a much faster process.
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
Railways played an integral role in the process of industrialization, opening up new markets and tying regions together, while at the same time creating a demand for resources and technology. Trans improved rapidly, new lines were built, cars were more comfortable, speeds increased to 80 km/hour. Even the rail lines connected with American railways to become part
Looking at the past, and exploring technologies that have had an impact on society is a valuable tool for entrepreneurs. There is much to learn about the Industrial Revolution and how the technologies developed at the time played such a huge role. The Industrial Revolution first instigated in England, then spread like wildfire throughout the world during the 18th and early 19th centuries. The lives of ordinary people was transformed dramatically, by a series of engineering inventions and industrial achievements allowing industry to develop so fast that society could barely keep up. One of the major inventions that helped launch the industrial revolution was the steam Locomotive.
The railroad not only helps with transportation but with trading. According to the article The Railway Journey, modern transportation “created a definite spatial distance between the places of production and the place of consumption did the goods become uprooted commodities” (40 Railroad Journey). Basically, this means that since the railroad allowed goods to be shipped to further distances at faster rates which resulted in mass productions and shipments of goods which resulted in a stable economy for the United
The necessity for this better network to move goods manifested itself in this desire for improvement. After the War of 1812, demand increased for better roads and canals to expedite the transport of goods across the nation (Dudley). This improved package of commerce and transportation directly contradicted the attitude of Agrarian Republicans like Jefferson who hoped that industrialization would not dominate America or its politics, fearing the inevitable shift of the country into continuous international turmoil. Jefferson’s fear was realized as nationalism manifested itself in manufacturing, with patriotic Americans taking pride in the factories that had recently mushroomed forth (Dudley). After the war, many Americans felt differently due to the war’s stimulative effect on the economy.
From 1900 through 1960, Russia participated in the First and Second World War and even started to fight in the Cold War. Russia was going through major reforms and industrialization to catch up with other countries. One change that occurred in Russia from 1900 to 1960 was that it tried to become more industrial so that it could be compared to other European countries. Russia was trying to do what other European countries were doing for years but it was seen a major threat because it was communist. However, Russia wasn’t always communist.
In order to keep up with constant battles, new technology needed to be invented to help fight the war. In the article “Steel and Steam” by Roger A. Bailey, he gives examples of what exactly was advanced and how it changed the Civil War. The other article by Civil War Academy was titled “Civil War Ships”. In this article, it talks about how Civil War ships in general changed the Civil War. It was generally thought that the navy wasn’t huge during the war.
