Blessing Brandon seeling hour 7

The Industrial Revolution began in England in the 18 century. It spread across the world into the United States. Sam Slater, an immigrant from England came to the United States. He brought the plans in his head about the first factories. From there the Industrial Revolution took off. Some would say that rapid industrial development became a blessing or was a curse. Rapid industrial development was a blessing because it helped improve transportation, communication, and technology.

TRansporation

Transportation was a blessing because the U.S. learned how to build railroads, steam engines, and cars. Without transportation we couldn't trade, or we couldn't get people where they wanted to go. Trading helps us get more food and money. The steam engines and railroads help us get to places faster. The industrial revolution also helped us make the first cars. This why transportation is a blessing.

CoMmunication

Communication was a blessing because the telegraph reduced the cost and time of communication. Without communication we would still being using horses to help us get the message where it needed to go. If we still had to deliver by horse, I don't think anybody would want to do it. Phones are way more easier than getting a letter. Also we have emails too. This is why communication is a blessing.

TECHNOLOGY

Technology and inventions were a blessing because without them we would still be making stuff with our own hands. Back in the late 1800s, the weaving machine was invented. Prior to this weaving was done by using hands. The weaving machines helped us. A man named James Watt, an engineer decided to build a steam machine. Also without technology doctors would not be able to see what's wrong with people. This is why technology is a blessing.
