The regional differences became intense as differences arose over national politics. The conflict over slavery divided Northerners, who opposed slavery, and Southerners, who believed in the necessity and value of slavery. The different regions also disagreed on the need for tariffs; a national bank; and internal improvements, such as canals and roads, to develop the nation's transportation system.
Why did the United States' Industrial Revolution appear first in New England?
The United States' Industrial Revolution first appeared in New England.The New England states—Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Vermont, and New Hampshire—offered ideal conditions for the development of factories. New England's soil was poor, and farming was difficult. As a result, people were willing to leave their farms to find work elsewhere. New England had many rushing rivers and streams that provided the waterpower necessary to run the machinery in the factories. New England's geographic location was also an advantage. It was close to the coal and iron from Pennsylvania, and New England had many shipping ports for the transportation of cotton from Southern states and cloth bound for markets throughout the nation. New England also had merchants with capital, which was important for developing machines and building industries.
Which inventions of the early 1800s made the Industrial Revolution possible?
There were several significant inventions during the late 1700s and early 1800s that made the Industrial Revolution possible. There were the spinning jenny, the water frame, the power loom, and the cotton gin. Each of these inventions improved the way cotton was processed and utilized. The steam engine was very important because it led to advances in both manufacturing and transportation. Together, these inventions led to a growth in manufacturing.
What were the advantages and the disadvantages of river travel during the 1800s?
There were some advantages and disadvantages to river travel during the 1800s. River travel was more comfortable than land travel over bumpy and dangerous roads. A person's possessions could be loaded onto a barge and floated downstream without the worry of wheels breaking or a loss of animals needed to pull the load. River travel was also faster if you were traveling in the direction of the current. The current would help push you to where you were going. However, most rivers run north to south, while most people wanted to travel from the east to the west. Also, a person wanting to travel upstream had a long and difficult trip as the barge labored against the current.
Why was the Erie Canal so important to the United States?
The Erie Canal was so important to the United States. The success of the Erie Canal led to exploration in canal building. Canals lowered the cost of shipping goods. They brought prosperity to the cities and towns along their routes. The canals allowed people to live farther away from the rivers. Perhaps most important, they helped unite the growing country.
