America Transformed Timeline and Paper HIS/110 January 31, 2011 America Transformed Timeline and Paper The industrialization of America contributed to the economic development of the country in many, many ways. Firstly, we need to define industrialization, which usually refers to a change from home and hand production to machine and factory production. The invention of water-powered spinning and weaving machines greatly increased production of material. The cotton gin, which was invented by Eli Whitney in 1794, greatly increased the cultivation of cotton in the south. When steam power replaced water power, industries and factories arose, creating industrialized areas which attracted more and more people with the promise of paying jobs.
In countries such as France, Latin America, the United States, and others, revolutions occurred and helped take control of political situations. In England, however, during the 1700’s, a different type of revolution took place. Triggered by the Agricultural revolution, this time period throughout the middle 1700’s is now known as the Industrial Revolution. This was a time where more techniques and inventions were created to increase efficiency in many areas of living. Size and number of farming land increased tremendously.

Cotton was needed around the world because of the invention of the spinning machine. There was a great need for workers, to work the fields and gin the cotton, thus more slaves were needed. This made life difficult for the slaves. Slaves were worth more money, and the whites’ attitudes changed toward the slaves and there was a decline of freed slaves after 1800. Therefore the slave population grew.
Factory work had some disadvantages though, for one people began to lose the feeling of self satisfaction from creating things since they often only a part process. Since the factories reduced the demand for the more expensive artisan made goods there were less skilled laborers and goods became more uniform. The factories also spawned the creation of labor unions which began exerting influence over the government, the unions started small in this era, but eventually gained power. The nature of work changed considerably during the gilded and progressive era, things such as wage labor, unions, and leisure time which had not really existed before sprung up and are still present more than 100 years labor, a sign of their
The early days of the Industrial revolution from 1800 to 1837 are a big change for America. It is principally a transformation in the economy due to the creations of new industries. Indeed, America shifts from an agrarian handcraft economy to a modern and technological one. However, even though the industrial changes brought economic advantages, it also brought stratification among Americans. In one side there is the working class fighting for his rights, and on the other side middle and upper class seeking their profits.
The Industrial Revolution of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries saw the advent of gross urbanization of factory towns and cities. Due to advancements in areas such as textiles and machinery, many people flocked from the country sides of Europe (particularly Britain) to cities where they sought work was factory operators and machinists. To accommodate the tremendous influx of people, cheap and cramped housing was built, with communal wells provided for water. However, as there were few facilities for removing sewage, and the living conditions were deplorable, disease became rampant. Typhoid fever, cholera, tuberculosis, smallpox and rabies were infectious agents which followed the bubonic plague, and found easy hosts in the unclean slums
immigration history is known as “New Immigration.” This is around 1840 to the 1900’s. This is also known as the industrial age. These new settlers came from southern and eastern Europe.
