  • Definition – period of rapid growth in using machines for manufacturing and production that began in the mid-1700s.

  • Why did we change into an industrialized nation?

  • How did machines change the textile industry?

What was the huge manufacturing breakthrough for the United States and why was it?

  • Interchangeable parts which made machines easier to assemble and for broken parts to be replaced


What was Eli Whitney’s influence over the Industrial Revolution?

  • Eli Whitney – created mass production techniques that allowed manufacturing to be more efficient

    • Interchangeable Parts

    • Interchangeable machine tools

    • Created Mass Production – efficient production of a large number of goods


What pushed the advancement of manufacturing in the United States?

  • The War of 1812 and the fact we could no longer purchase the cheapest manufactured goods from Great Britain because we were at war with them.
