2.01 Industrialization Changes America

The Second Industrial Revolution affected the regions of the United States differently. Use these notes to compare the effects of the revolution on the North, South, West, and Midwest. In the chart, you will identify the political, social, economic, population, and transportation changes that the revolution brought to each region.
Part 2
Explain how the Second Industrial Revolution affected the North, South, West, and Midwest.
Which region would you have preferred to live in during this period?
Explain how the Second Industrial Revolution affected the North, South, West, and Midwest.
The Second Industrial Revolution affected all four regions with several new changes such as the population, transportation, and economically. The swift development and progression of the manufacturing economy in each region was used to construct a need for the workers to entice, which means to attract or tempt by offering pleasure or advantage, many of the immigrants. By 1870, about 15% of the Unites States’ population was foreign-born, which means that they came from a foreign country and about one of every five industrial workers was actually an immigrant. All four regions have also industrialized and enhanced their transportation systems, which were mostly by railroads. All of the railroads connect to other cities and were mainly used to transport possessions, meaning goods, as well as natural resources to other places. All four regions also have their own type of economy. The Northeast region stayed being the leading industrial region. Both the South and the West maintained a developing agricultural economy. However, the West’s meagre population did not really provision much towards the industrial development. The last region, the Midwest, mainly experienced economic development in both manufacturing and farming.
Which region would you have preferred to live in during this period? Why?
If I had to decide on which region to live, that was during the time frame of the Second Industrial Revolution, would have to be the Northeast region. My first reason why I would choose the Northeast region compared to the South, West, and Midwest is because the Northeast was the leading industrial region in both the First and Second Industrial Revolution. Another reason is because I originally was from the Northeast region, in the state of New York, which back then was one of the three states that produced more than 85% of all U.S. industrial products in 1890. The swift development of the economy beseeched, which means to beg, for more workers so it would have been simpler for me to find a good occupation as well as to provide for my household. Also, the Northeast region. The northeast region advanced, enhanced, succeeded more than the South, West, and Midwest regions in both the First and Second Industrial Revolutions and I would also have wanted to play a part of that experience.
The development of the industry emphasized the gap that would be between the rich and the poor. The wealthy impresarios mostly wanted to increase the profits. The workers also wanted better wages as well as better working conditions.
Economic or Type of Economy
The Northeast pretty much endured the leading industrial in the Second Industrial Revolution. There were only three states that produced more then 85% of all of the United States' industrial products back in 1890. Those three states were:
Population Change
The swift growth of a manufacturing economy created a personal need for the workers. The cities in the Northeast actually became check points, which is almost like destinations, for the immigrants that came to the United States. By 1870, about 15% of the Unites States’ population was foreign-born, which means that they came from a foreign country. About
one of every five
industrial workers was actually an immigrant. Most of those immigrants basically settled in the Northeast.
The post-Civil War South continued to have difficulties that were mostly related to race. The new laws that were referencing and regarding segregation made it challenging and problematic for African Americans in the South to enjoy and get used the transportation, what was both upgraded and reconstructed.
Economic or Type of Economy
The war actually ended slavery, which also took away the South's focal source of work. Although it mostly remained to be agricultural, the South started creating and developing an industry for timber. Both deposits of coal and iron that were in the southern Appalachian Mountains gave intensification, which is the action of making or becoming more intense, which can also be described as a rise or an increase, towards the steel production that was in Birmingham, Alabama.
Population Change
Many African Americans that were in the South, in fact, left the South to work in the new factories and businesses that were in both the North and the Midwest. In both the North and Midwest, many African Americans had a better and improved chance of earning decent wages and improving their standings both economically and socially.
The inclination, or willingness, of the Chinese immigrants to work for lower salaries and the ethnic differences between the Chinese immigrants and the white settlers that led to friction, which is not referring the physics term.
Economic or Type of Economy
Population Change
Chinese immigrants reached in the West and were searching for occupations on the intensifying railroads. The population of the West actually didn’t fund much of the industrial development.
Population Change
Many cities grew swiftly, which helped attract enormous numbers of immigrants. One city of Illinois, Chicago, became one of the nation's largest cities that was during this time frame. In 1860, Chicago’s population was about 110,000. Then, three decade later, which is 1890, more than one million people were living there.
Economic or Type of Economy
The Midwest did experience economic growth in both manufacturing and farming. The upper Midwest states actually became the centers of industry as well as a hub for delivery, also known as shipping, and transportation.
Like the Northeast, the Midwest had some waves of the immigrants that came to its cities. The gap that was between the rich and the poor was basically just a font, meaning source, of friction.

For transportation, there were almost 200,000 miles of railroad line that was connecting the cities in the Northeast by the year 1900.

Also, the didn't have odometers back then like the present.
Inequitable, which means discriminatory, rules and uprisings were mainly due to the augmented, which means to be having been made greater in size or value, tension between the immigrants and the white settlers.
The improvement and enlargements of railways made Chicago an entryway between both the East and West. The trains carried merchandises from eastern manufacturers, to be shipped up north to the Upper Midwest as well as being shipped west, which is across the Great Plains.
As a result of the development of both the social chances and the industry changes, the political views and outlooks were frequently contravened. The labor unions actually started off in the Northeast. Both the miners and the steelworkers were some of the first workers for the usage of the strike almost like a bartering tool against the business owners.
Most industries and railroad transportation were actually demolished during the Civil War. However, by the 1800s, the South started to reestablish them.
The achievement of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869 was linked to the shorelines of the United States. The railways helped transport some natural resources like gold and lumber from the West to the East.
The labor unions were very vigorous, which can mean active or full of energy, in the cities. There were social reform movements that arose in two states. Those two states were Ohio and Illinois. In the rural areas, the farmers were also politically vigorous. It was basically a region in which the campaigns that are social and political actually took root.
The laws that certified both segregation and discrimination actually made it a challenge for the African Americans in the South to appreciate the transportation, that is now improved, during the Second Industrial Revolution.
New York
In fact, agriculture actually became more competent in the Midwest and also invigorated, which means to be encouraged, settlers to acquire land in the West. However, the meagre, which means to be lacking in quantity or quality, population of the West didn’t support or provide much industrial development, and the economy continued to be based upon the natural resources.
