  20. 20. Click on title to return to main menu • The Industrial Revolution started in Great Britain in the mid 1700s when British inventors developed new machines in clothing (textiles) factories. • James Hargreaves invented the spinning jenny in 1764, which allowed a machine to spin several threads at once.
  21. 21. Click on title to return to chapter 12 vocabulary list • Then a new system of producing goods was created called the factory system, which allowed workers and machines to be housed in one building to produce a good. • Before this method was used, production was done in the home.
  22. 22. • Slater brought the secret of the Factory system over from Great Britain in 1789. • Great Britain passed a law forbidding anyone from taking plans of the factory system out of Great Britain, so Slater simply memorized the plans and left for the Americas to build a factory of his own. • In 1793, he built the first textile (clothing) factory in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
  23. 23. • The War of 1812 also led to Industrialization in the United States because during the War with Great Britain trading stopped between the two countries. • The United States needed to replace the goods we used to buy from Great Britain before the war and to also produce items needed for War. Thus, factories were produced to solve this problem.

  30. 30. Workers in factories worked as many as 12 hours a Day, six days a week.
  31. 31. • The Industrial Revolution led to more family members going to work. • Women in poorer families often went to work at factories to help support the family. • The same with children.
  32. 32. The Lowell Factories Location Description
  33. 33. • Factory was located in Lowell, Massachusetts. • Town was named after it’s founder, Francis Cabot Lowell.
  34. 34. • The Lowell Mills were an entire town that had more than 10,000 workers. • Most were young girls called “Lowell Girls”. • They were hired for a few years and given room and board.
  35. 35. Inventors and Famous Inventions (Click on Pictures)
  36. 36. • Invented the Spinning Jenny in 1764. • This machine could spin several threads of cloth at once.
  37. 37. • Built a loom powered by water in 1780. • This water loom could spin even more cloth than the spinning jenny.
  38. 38. • Brought the factory system to America in 1789 and built the first factory in the United States in 1793. • Now workers and equipment could be placed under one roof to produce goods faster and cheaper than ever before.
  39. 39. • Eli Whitney came up with two inventions. • They were Interchangeable Parts and the Cotton Gin.
  40. 40. • Interchangeable parts are identical, machine-made parts for a tool or instrument. • Eli Whitney used this concept to make muskets for the army. Before interchangeable parts, individual gunsmiths would make the parts for muskets. If the part broke it was very difficult to replace, because the parts were handmade. • Now the parts could be replaced quickly because all parts for guns could be made identically. • This concept was soon adapted by manufacturers for all sorts of other goods.
  41. 41. • Invented in 1793, the cotton gin could clean the seeds from cotton faster than by hand. • This led to a boom in cotton production in the south, which became known as the Cotton Kingdom.
  42. 42. Invented a light weight steel plow in 1825.
  43. 43. • Invented the telegraph in 1844. • Soon news could be sent across the country using Morse code.
  44. 44. • Invented the first successful steamboat line in 1807. • His ship the Clermont sailed from New York City to Albany and back in 62 hours. A record at that time. • Goods could know be moved quicker and cheaper than ever before.
  45. 45. • In the Early 1800s, new transportation methods were being developed that could get goods and people to distant places faster and cheaper than ever before. New Transportation Methods Steamboat Canals Railroads Roads
  46. 46. • Invented the first successful steamboat line in 1807. • His ship the Clermont sailed from New York City to Albany and back in 62 hours. A record at that time. • Goods could know be moved quicker and cheaper than ever before
  47. 47. • Man made waterways were constructed all over the Northeast to get goods to west and east. • One canal that was built between the years 1817-1825 was the Erie Canal.
  48. 48. • Improved roads were being built to link the east and west. • That way farmers good send there crops to the east to be sold and manufacturers could send their goods to the west, too. The first national road was completed in 1818 and linked Cumberland, Maryland to Wheeling, western Virginia. •
  49. 49. • Railroads would eventually replace the canal. • By 1869 the first transcontinental railroad was completed connecting the Atlantic Coast to the Pacific Coast.
  50. 50. • Henry Clay of Kentucky was responsible for this new push in transportation lines. • His Plan as called the American System and his idea was to improve the infrastructure of the United States so Northern States good send their manufactured goods to farmers in the West and South. In addition, the farmers in the West and South could send their crops north to be sold. • Thus, a trade network would be established that would benefit the entire nation.
  51. 51. • Built between the years 1817-1825. • Linked Buffalo to Albany, New York. • Provided a faster means of transportation for farmers in Western New York to get crops and livestock to Albany and then to New York City via steamboats on the Hudson River.
  52. 52. • The cities of Rome, Utica and Syracuse soon emerged along the route of the canal.
  53. 53. • Built between the years 1817-1825. • Linked Buffalo to Albany, New York. • Provided a faster means of transportation for farmers in Western New York to get crops and livestock to Albany and then to New York City via steamboats on the Hudson River.
  54. 54. • The cities of Rome, Utica and Syracuse soon emerged along the route of the canal.
