From 1760 to 1840, the Industrial Revolution appeared and developed in England. The political advantages in England launched the start of the Industrial Revolution. The Parliament, provided by the government, was created between 1800-1810, and gave permission for innovators to create machinery. This introduced a profit motive and rise of scientific ideas. With the support of political input, commoners and entrepreneurs were able to create their own wealth.
Because they focused on naval needs, the people developed the ironclads, torpedoes, submarines, steam engines, rams, and better overall battleships. In an article written by Roger A. Bailey, it explains how these advancements contributed to the Civil War as a whole. Bailey explains how these advancements already existed, but they were advanced in order to keep up with the war. Bailey also gives many examples of what things were advanced during the Civil War. Bailey also talks about how these advancements play into later wars such as World War I.
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.
The industrialization affected various groups of the society belonging to distinct races and ethnic backgrounds. It also led to the involvement of child labor and people belonging to all genders. It was only after the Civil War that the nation’s railroads became extensive enough to distribute the excess product created by the industrialized factories across different regions. Between 1865 and 1920, industries began to industrialize with the advancements in technology. The result of industrialization was more economic activity aimed at distributing and selling the products.
Additionally, Southern generals were vastly superior to their northern counterparts. These are just a few of the many distinctions between these two warring nations. The first and most important advantage the north had was their heavy population. In total, the north outnumbered the south by more than 5 to 2. The north also had about 70% of all railroads in America under their control, and this allowed them to productively move soldiers and supplies rapidly around the nation.
But when the war became a reality it was evident immediately that artillerymen were not ready to deal with close combat, and under General H.J Hunt would have to adapt their crew drills and reorganize if they were to survive and continue to be a contributing member of the force. Napoleon Bonaparte Napoleon capitalized on the potential of Field Artillery by using it as an offensive weapon system. He could reach out and attack from a distance without placing his artillery assists at risk. Back then the range of his cannons was only 300 to 400 yards, while the muskets used by his enemy was no more than 150 yards. This was not the case during the Civil War as upgraded technology and weapons allowed Soldiers to engage with effective fire
This transportation system helped to create a booming market. Although China did not become industrialized, pushing the limits of the old biological regime with old technology and their growing population size forced China to become a very labour-intensive agricultural giant in order to support themselves. Overall, although the world had left behind an old and insufficient biological regime, the Industrial Revolution brought with it its own challenges for mankind. Things like cotton, tea, silver, opium, iron, and steam were all items that dominated the Industrial Era. Tea and opium were mass produced by the Chinese, and England stripped silver from the New World to pay for these goods.
The weapons were very advanced and very dangerous but with technology today it is more advanced. The change of inventions, weapons, and techniques that changed warfare had a big impact on world war 1. This gave less peace to what happened between the countries. New weapons were also made a big difference in the war. They made a big difference because the
Steam engines and Industrialization provided Europeans with vastly superior transportation: steamships, railroads, superior communications: telegraph and superior military power. The uneven power relationship that so favored Europeans made imperialism possible and hard to resist. (Lecture notes 21st October) However, by the 19th century, Europe’s dominance almost came to its end. Many factors contributed but in my opinion, it can be argued that mostly due to the competitive system and bit of industrialization, Europe’s dominance came to a decline. Due to competitive state system, the Europeans competed with each other and this is how the Industrialization revolution came into being as well; to compete with each other.
The first stanza opens in the middle of a battle with “Charge for the guns!” and where it takes place. The no agency of the man who gives the order to attack underlines that the important figures of the poem are the six hundred men of the Light Brigade. The fearlessness of the soldiers appears represented in the second, third and fourth stanzas of the poem, together with the description of the events which took place. The rhetorical question of the second stanza presents the six hundred soldiers as being confident and brave, since any of them “dismay’d", despite knowing they were charging towards their deaths. “Boldly they rode and well” injects another value of the soldiers of the light brigade: valour.
