The North had a significantly larger population, caused by both the surge in immigrants at the time, as well as the success of business and factories there, creating more jobs. This difference in population meant that the North did not need slavery, and that it supported government ideas that helped business. According to the Congressional Record, in New England and the Middle States, the majority of House votes were cast for the Tariff of 1816, while the majority of the South’s House votes were cast against the tariff (Document 7). These states were clearly in favor of business, while the South who relies on imports and exports, was wholly against it. Because factory jobs were in the North, railroads and steamboats were in vastly more demand in the North than they were in the South, increasing the speed at which a business could move its product, an essential for
Industrialisation affected the start of World War 1 as it led to improved military technology which increased the likelihood for one’s nation to win. Great Britain was the first to industrialise rapidly after 1870 and was whom the main competition could be seen between. Essentially, Militarism and Industrialisation were two causes that prominently linked as the improvement and growth in manufacturing lead to having a stronger nation. As a result of having a strong nation, other countries wanted to link up with those that were advanced. Those who were a part of a developed and successful country were more patriotic as they believed they were part of something great.
This influenced colonisation of North America due to the fact that population growth threatened to undermine the existing social order as the government did not know how to cope with the growing number of people and they struggled to find places for people to work without causing social disorder. It was important at this time for countries to mobilise economic resources so that all resources could be narrowly focused on a common goal, such as industrial or commercial expansion. That strength of the western European states which could be mobilised lay in conditions that permitted the growth, on the foundation of initially landlord and peasant economies, of industries, trading activities and services whose productivity was relatively high and which in favourable circumstances could originate innovations in technique or organisation or effect regular capital accumulation. The western European countries all experienced rapid population growth until the end of the 16th century. The growth of population, supported by more abundant money supply, was at the base of an economic expansion that was general during the 16th century.
However, following the Civil War, a new economy was born in the United States, mainly relying on steam-powered manufacturing, the transcontinental railroad, the electric motor, and the practical application of chemistry. Unlike the pre-Civil War economy and business, this new one was dependent on raw materials from around the world and it sold goods not only in Europe, but all around the world. After the Civil War, business organization also expanded in size and scale. As far as industrial changes go, the period after the reconstruction era was affected in that it used more modern methods to make goods that could be sold faster and more efficiently, with the new railroad system. By the beginning of the 20th century, the nation’s industry would be mainly fueled by banking, manufacturing, meat packing, oil refining, railroads, and steel, as opposed to the pre- Civil War era, in which many people were still farmers or factory
Causes of the War of 1812- Included the implementation of the “Orders in Council,” the British efforts to control United States trade, the Royal Navy’s impressment of American seamen and America’s longing to magnify its territory. Involvement The War of 1812 was a military skirmish fought amongst the United States of America and the United Kingdom, its North American colonies, and its North American Indian allies.
Overall, during the transportation revolution, construction of turnpikes, roads, canals, and railroads led to the market economy expansion, an increased population in America and alternations of the physical landscape of America. As American factories and farms started to produce more goods businessmen and legislators began to create a faster and cheaper way to get goods distributed to consumers. Around 1820, Americans began to build canals and steamboats, railroad, and extend roads linking the Atlantic Coast with new states in the Trans Appalachian west. Canals and Steamboats shrunk the distance of carrying goods from one place to another and could haul the most cargo for transportation. A well-known waterway called the Erie Canal connected the Great Lakes region to the Atlantic Ocean and cost 7 million dollars.
The industrial revolution made life in the 1700s and 1800s easier because of the various inventions created, such as the cotton gin in the United States of America; the cotton gin separated the seeds from the cotton making working faster and easier. The industrial revolution made use out of resources in a country to make new operations of manufacturing. For example, the steamboat reason for its created was to serve as a mode of transportation that used the resources of steam power and rivers. Furthermore, the steamboat made transporting supplies faster and more effective. Resources was a necessity for the inventions of machinery
The demand for stock became so great that the prices went up, but the value of the companies didn’t actually increase. The true effect that the consumer culture had on Americans during this period is evidenced through a line in a popular song during the time period, “they used to tell me I was building a dream, and so I followed the mob” (Song of the Depression: “Brother, Can You Spare a Dime?, 230). The new, strong consumer culture that was created caused people to buy stock on credit, but eventually people stopped paying the inflated prices. This was detrimental as the market became flooded with unwanted stock, causing stock prices to drop and a widespread panic. The new consumer culture is what led to 16.5 million shares being sold in one day, which was detrimental to the stock market as it caused the crash on October 29, 1929.
In return of taking of land the us built better schools which meant there was better teaching and more successful people making new innovations. Overall I think that imperialism had a positive impact on the world because of easier ship travel, better economy and trade, but also because we spread important pieces of american society like our language and religion. Of course american imperialism had its bumps along the way but they do not compare to the positive impacts it
He pointed out there were several factors that led to the War of 1812. Great Britain wanted France out the way. The United States trading with foreign countries as well as Britain holding Nate Americans hostage with guns. Britain was forcing U.S. sailors to serve on British Navy ships. Americans wanted to save their honor in face of British insults was forced out and acknowledge.
