The Blessing of industrialization By: Dakota meats Hr. 7th

The industrial revolution started from a man named Samuel Slater. He was the first immigrant to come to the United States. While he was at the United States he showed Americans machinery. This machinery basically made the United States the United States. The industrial revolution was a blessing because it improved communication, it opened up job opportunities, and it had a major impact on population increase.

Improvement of Communication

Communication improvement was a big blessing because it gave birth to the telegraph. The telegraph was invented so that we could send messages in coding to people faster than riding a car to a different state just to deliver a message. It could also send building plans. It made life so much easier, but we had to learn the codes. Rapid development of telegraph systems came with the discovery that electric impulses could be used to transmit signals along a wire.

Job Opportunities

Job opportunities was a blessing because it made people be able to make money for there family. Job opportunities affected families because it gave them more money to buy more crops for their farms. It also affected society because without the factories there would be no job opportunities. Which means no one would have enough money to live. This would cause the major cities to have not been built. But, In the earliest stages of the Industrial Revolution, the concern of employers had been to find enough workers.

Population increase

Population increase was a blessing because it made America expand into all of the land that makes up the United States today, so without immigrants we would not have nearly as much people as we do today. The Irish were the biggest immigrant group because they had a food sortage and they had to move. This affected the country because it made a major increase in the population. This made the United States have a bigger advantage in war. North America was first settled by immigrants from Asia. More than 12 million immigrants to the United States passed through Ellis Island and the immigration center's Great Hall, where authorities could weed out undesirables.
