The... ... middle of paper ... ... than they did before. Thus widening the gap between being poor and being wealthy. Land value was also increasing due to the location of the factories. The North-East land became more valuable because that is were most of the factories were located. (Bailey) Overall, the Industrial Revolution brought more money to North America which caused the country to flourish and it kept the country alive and helped it grow to what it is today.
These landowners improved the farming methods they were used to which soon led to an agricultural revolution. After buying up most of the land of the village farmers, their increase of landholdings enabled them to cultivate more crops on larger fields. Enclosures were inside of these larger fields. Enclosures were the areas that landowners could experiment with more productive harvesting methods and seeding in order to determine if these experiments boosted crop yield. The Enclosure movement had two important results.
The inventions of the Industrial Revolution shaped the future, how we travel, and how we live our daily lives. There would be no microwaves, Wi-Fi, or iPhones without the Industrial Revolution. The factories created many jobs and faster production. Masses of people left their rural homes to get jobs and start a new life in these new, industrial cities. The Industrial Revolution resulted in an improvement of the quality of life which led to better education, health and nutrition, and a massive population boom.
The Industrial Revolution during 1760 to 1820 in Great Britain was a burgeoning period. The revolution brought massive benefits and changes on socioeconomic and cultural conditions. Firstly, it pushed the development of socioeconomic, and also released a great amount of working opportunity. At second his extraordinary change made the communication and transportation more efficient. Lastly, this revolution it made the production of agriculture boost, and fewer workers were needed in farm work.
Over the course of the nineteenth century, Great Britain underwent many social and economic changes due to the prosperity of the country. England’s superiority to other European countries in this era can be attributed to many different factors. First, the simple presence of a Parliament helped to maintain a strong government that granted an unprecedented number of rights to its citizens. Another cause was that this country laid the foundation for the Industrial Revolution globally. The Industrial Revolution was the general name given to a time period that marked the transition from hand-made products to machine-made products, leading to a booming economy and an abundance of jobs for unskilled workers.
Even though there were rough and risky activities that many innocent people went through or had to do, the industrial revolution was the greatest to ever happen to America. America would not be the America is today if it did not had went through all of those level ups and few hardships. Americans gained confidence and experience from all the things that they did and experienced. The industrialization boosted the U.S. economy and introduced them to many new inventions and showed them that they were capable of creation a great nation after all. Industrial Revolution changed lives and made everything easier and ideal.
Without both industrial revolutions the United States would have not been able to industrialize or modernize. Even though the Industrial Revolution began in Britain, the United States was able to become the more powerful country after both Industrial Revolutions. Before the Civil War, industrialization was slowly occurring with the invention of the steam engine and later the steam boat. It helped oversea shipping faster, making Britain successful. After the Civil War, the United States particularly New York, built many factories that increased the population and the number of workers.
The Industrialization Impact In the history of the United States, it can be argued that the economic change that occurred in the midst of industrialization was the foremost change that led to us becoming a world power. This change began with the newfound desires of U.S. companies to do things efficiently, and the invention of newer machines such as the cotton gin enabled them to do so. These inventions made many industries that were becoming unprofitable more profitable again, and gave the economic boost that the U.S. economy needed. With increased efficiency and the lowering of costs, many factories blew up around the country, and thousands of jobs were created. People began to migrate to these newly established urban areas around factories, seeking opportunity, steady income to feed their families, and a way to move out of poverty.
The North went through a transition from hand-made to machine-made production of goods. This included the evolution of factories where work was performed on a large scale in a single centralized location (Economic Growth and the Early Industrial Revolution, n.d.). Not only manufacturing became mechanized but also agriculture. With invention of mechanical reapers and the steel plow, agriculture became less physical demanding and the farmers’ productivity increased drastically (Rourk et al, 2009, p. 397). The Industrial Revolution spurred on the economic growth and improved the living standards in the North.
Through the cultivation of new farming technology and methods they were able to feed millions and produce healthier foods. With trade the British dominated the overseas commerce and maritime. English politics and investment created the perfect breeding ground for modernizations and inventions. Factories brought the rise of urbanization to small towns and cities, turning them into metropolises. If one of these factors deviated from its course, then the Industrial revolution may have not happened the way it did.
