How Things Are Made • During Colonial times, most people lived and worked on farms • Workers were in short supply outside the home • To make up for lack of workers, Americans developed tools that made their jobs easier and more efficient • At home, people made clothes, furniture, farm equipment, and household items • By the mid-1700s, the way things were made began to change

Changes To How Things Are Made • First happened in Great Britain • British inventors created machinery to perform some of the work involved in cloth making • Ran by water power • Textile (cloth) factories were built by fast moving rivers • People left the farms and moved in order to make money • This is known as the Industrial RevolutionHand made to machine made products

Industrial Revolution in New England • New England was the first to have the Industrial Revolution in America • The regions geography contributed to the development of the Industrial Revolution • 1. Farming was difficult in New England (Poor soil, short growing season) • 2. New England had rivers and streams for waterpower • 3. New England was close to resources (coal and iron deposits) • 4. Had many ports

New Technology

• During the Industrial Revolution, new inventions were introduced • The spinning jenny, the water frame, and the power loom allowed many steps in making cloth to be done by machines • These machines saved time and money • Eli Whitney invented the cotton gin- removed seeds from cotton • Before the cotton gin- A person can clean only one pound of cotton in a day • After the cotton gin- A person could clean 50 pounds a day

In 1798 Eli Whitney was to make 10,000 guns in two years Before Whitney, each gun was made by hand, so each gun would be different If a piece broke, its replacement part would have to be custom made By 1800, Whitney had not delivered the guns He was called to Washington to explain the delay Whitney arrived with a box full of different parts- barrels, triggers, and so on Whitney took one part from each pile and assembled a gun in seconds Made machines that could make parts that were exactly alike Used standardization- using interchangeable parts Made items faster and less expensive Repairs were easier Could now produce hundreds of guns in the time it took a gunsmith to make one

Patents and Factories

• 1790- Congress passed a patent law to protect the rights of inventors • The British tried to keep the information secret, but a few British workers brought the knowledge to the United States • Samuel Slater memorized the design and made a cotton mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island • Slater’s Mill started the Industrial Revolution in the United States • Francis Cabot Lowell improved the Slater’s process • All stages of cloth making were performed under one roof • Lowell began the factory systemAll steps in one place to increase efficiency

Free Enterprise • Industrial growth requires competition to flourish with little government interference • Capitalism is the economic system of the United States • Individuals put their capital into a business hoping to make more money • Free enterprise also describes our economy • People may produce, sell, and work were they want • The major elements of free enterprise are competition, profits, private property, and economic freedom

Agriculture Expands

• Even with the Industrial Revolution, most Americans still lived and worked on farms • In the Northeast, farmers marketed their produce locally • In the South, cotton production rose dramatically • Slavery rose dramatically as well • Between 1790 and 1820Cotton production soared from 3,000 bales to more than 300,000 bales per year • Farmers moved to the West to plant cotton • Western farmers north of the Ohio River concentrated on raising pork and cash crops such as corn and wheat
