The IndustrialRevolution is a direct contradiction to that statement; it is the only revolution in history not to have one single drop of blood shed at any time. The IndustrialRevolution was a period from 1700-1850 in which new technology was being discovered at an alarming rate.

Europe during the eighteenth century was at the height of the industrialrevolution, none of which reached America. In New England the population was largely English, but America as a whole had more than 20 ethnic strains present, nowhere in Europe could such a heterogeneous mixture be found. America was unique in its political structure. Americans vested authority in personalities, rather than, as in England, in institutions of tradition. As a people they had been striped of traditions. America lacked the centuries of tradition that other societies had. American cities not only solved thier problems, but they sought to solve them. European cities were encrustedVIEW DOCUMENT

The IndustrialRevolution in Great Britain is recognized as a period of great industrial capitalism, machine development, and emergence of the working class.1 The growth of factories began shortly after Richard Arkwright patented the spinning frame in 1769.2 Factories allowed for hundreds of unskilled workers to find jobs running machines and drastically changed their lifestyles as jobs moved away from rural areas. The putting-out system, where jobs were subcontracted, slowly came to an end because work became centralized in factories. 3 Few industries continued on with domesticVIEW DOCUMENT

The American industrialrevolution has its roots in the IndustrialRevolution which began in England. The demand for cotton was huge during this time. Many new industries that helped America’s business were developed, but some treated their workers poorly. Also, many new forms of transportation and communication were developed and improved. Agriculture became industrialized by teaming up with some industries to produce the needs of Americans and many immigrants.

The two most significant social consequences to the First IndustrialRevolution of 1780-1850, was the impact on urbanization and the working class. The IndustrialRevolution began in England in the 18th century. It was a time of pronounced transformation to the manner in which people existed and functioned in the world. The inventions of machines provided the ability to have dramatic growths on mass manufacturing in textile and coal mining, iron and steel making. It led to large factories and mills that were built to house machines and employed workers, which lead to increased production and wealth for industrialists worldwide.

Question: Why was England the first country to industrialize?
The IndustrialRevolution introduced great things to Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries. England was the first to industrialize for three reasons; the availability of natural resources, the population, and war. Natural resources were very abundant in England, providing a large advantage. The growing population provided more potential buyers for England’s economy. The Napoleonic wars were over inVIEW DOCUMENT

The IndustrialRevolution is a term usually applied to the social and economic changes that mark the transition from a stable agricultural and commercial society, to a modern industrial society relying on complex machinery rather than tools. There have been numerous debates to the use of this term because the word "revolution" suggests sudden, violent, unparalleled change. Even though there was an unparalleled change in the world, it was by no means sudden nor violent. The world's social and economic structures changed due to marvelous inventions and innovations.

The IndustrialRevolution was the transformation from agricultural to an industrial nation. During the 1780's, the IndustrialRevolution first began in England. The IndustrialRevolution took place when people migrated from rural areas to urban areas to work in factories. As a result of increased population and trade, Great Britain rose to be the Mother country of the IndustrialRevolution. Many natural resources like coal and oil were developed in The United Kingdom.

America’s Gilded Age, roughly between 1877 and 1890, was a time of expansion. Apart of the Gilded Age was the Second IndustrialRevolution, and during this time America endured “one of the most rapid and profound economic revolutions any country has ever experienced” (Foner, 2012, pp. 586). Many people were affected during this time especially the working class, but the IndustrialRevolution brought so many technologies and innovations which propelled a transition to a new economy (Atkeson and Kehoe, 2001, pp. 2).

The two most significant social consequences of the First IndustrialRevolution (c. 1780-1850) are urbanization and child labor. Because people moved from rural areas into cities, the living conditions changed for the worse and with the invention of the steam-operated power loom in 1785, children were able to operate this simple machine and produce textiles for the exploding population ("Begins," n.d.). The IndustrialRevolution began as the development of iron making and the use of refined coal triggered the invention of machine-based manufacturing of textiles ("IndustrialRevolution," n.d.).

If you need to talk to someone, you simply pick up your phone or computer. However, none of this would be possible without a means of communication, factories to manufacture the products you need, places to work, and ways to travel and transport goods.
