The Industrial Revolution
Transcript of The Industrial Revolution
Inventions The Product The Railroad The railroad is one of the reasons why the north won the civil war. Getting goods to soldiers who were sick, or starving was a whole lot easier with a more widespread system when the south had a very little system. Industrial The cotton gin revolutionized the way to pick cotton. With the cotton gin it would take out the seeds faster than a person could. This is whenever King cotton came into play. The Cotton Gin Before the industrial revolution, factories would produce far less than they would after the revolution. (who would have thought??) Factory Work before and after Revoultion Resources Samuel F. B. Morse Whenever you hear a train coming it whistles a certain pattern. long, long, short, long. In Morse code that would be a Q=dash,dash,dot, dash, and the Q is short for Queen. So whenever you hear a train's whistle it stands for, the Queen is coming. Samuel was actually an artist NOT an inventor Invented the telegraph Invented the Morse code Born on April 27, 1791 in Charlestown Massachusetts The reason Samuel wanted to invent the telegraph is because he was away whenever his wife died, and didn't find out until she was already buried in the ground. Which made him think, there has to be a better way of communicating Random Fact!!!! The distress signal SOS doesn't stand for anything. The letters where picked because they were the fastest way to communicate if there were an emergency in Morse Code. S= dot dot dot, O=dash dash dash Eli Whitney Invented the cotton gin in 1794 In 1798 he came up with the idea of having interchangeable parts to make muskets. Cube Flags and More Was born on December 8, 1765 Thomas Edison Was the most famous inventor of his time Had about 1,093 inventions. Created the motion picture, phonograph, and his most famous one; the incandescent lightbulb Alexander Graham Bell Invented the telephone Born on March 3, 1847. In Scotland! The telephone for a long time was only used for individual purpose Charles Goodyear Invented vulcanized rubber many people believe he made it by mistake the rubber could withstand larges amounts of pressure and also bad weather. Elias Howe & Issac Singer Invented the Sewing Machine The Singer Corporation is still making sewing machines to this day New :) Old:) The Industrial Revolution Forwards and backwards The first Industrial Revolution was from the 1820's-1870's. During this time electricity was starting to bloom with the telegraph, and the lightbulb. There were more inventors than America could count, and the mostly famous inventors such as Samuel Morse weren't even planning on inventing something that would change our world forever. Other inventions, such as the cotton gin, helped with the antebellum south and their crops. Inventions such as the steam engine and the growth in the railroad system made transportation much more easier. American was starting to grow, and before anybody could know it they could talk to their cousin they didn't know existed, and could even actually meet them even though they were across the country. Cyrus McCormick Invented the mechanical reaper in 1831 This made it easier to harvest grain. Whenever he was a kid, he lived on a 532 acre farm!!! Say hi to Bob! He works long hours in a cold factory up in New York. Workers Before Workers worked in bad conditions due to weather, and had very long hours.There would often be women and children working in the factories also. There was unfair pay as well. Workers After Workers after normally had much better working spaces, women started to not be in the factories because of the Germans and Irish coming to America. Some things ran on water power instead of man made labor. There was very little transportation before the industrial revolution most people had to walk everywhere. There were some railroads, but they were unsafe for people to travel on. How people talked to each other before the industrial revolution was actually talking to each other. And if you had a loved one far away you wrote them letters. The transcontinental railroad also helped bring goods throughout the expanding America. The telegraph helped get important news out to America This was also another tool that helped the north win the civil war. The Mechanical Reaper Even though cotton was the main crop of the south the reaper changed the way for harvesting grain as well. The Steam Engine Thomas Savery patented the first steam engine in 1698. Later on Thomas Newcomen improved this design, but it wasn't until James Watt improved the design and it became the start of the industrial revolution. How the Industrial Revolution changed the south The south was now producing much more cotton because of the cotton gin. This made an increase in slavery, because now that only one person could operate the cotton gin more people could be outside picking more cotton. Because there was more cotton Britain and France was in return buying more percentage of it, which is why they supported them in the civil war. The North after the Industrial Revolution The north was now more tech savvy than the south because the railroads had spread, and the telegraph had become huge. Also because of the sewing machine, clothing wasn't being made at home anymore but in factories. By Kayla Kyle By Kayla Kyle Works Cited Kelly, Martin.
