The Growth of a
National Economy
Part 1
The Industrial Revolution
was a time of dramatic
change, from hand tools
and handmade items, to
products which were mass
produced by machines.
Workers became more
productive, and since more
items were manufactured,
prices dropped, making
exclusive and hard to make
items available to the poor,
not only the rich and elite.
Life generally improved, but the
industrial revolution also proved
Pollution increased, working
conditions were dangerous, and
capitalists employed women and
young children, making them work
long and hard hours.

The industrial
revolution was a
time of change, for
better or worse.
Pre-Industrial Age
• China further advanced than Europe
• They used gunpowder, silk, linen,
cotton, spices, and the compass
• Europe does not catch up until the
Age of Exploration (1500)
Pre-Industrial Age
• Europeans and Americans grew
their own food, made their own
clothing and household items,
and rarely traveled more than 10
miles from home
Pre-Industrial Age
• Energy used was wind,
water, people and animals
• Coal could be burned for
fuel but it wasn’t possible
to mine deeply into the
Pre-Industrial Age
• Materials used for
products included wood,
wool, and precious
• Iron could be produced
but it was expensive,
brittle, and a slow
Pig Iron Molds
Agricultural Revolution
• By 1600, the world was experiencing
changes in the production of food
• New techniques were introduced fertilizers, crop rotation, flood
control and irrigation
• Less people were needed to grow
more crops
Cottage Industries
• People bartered extra goods with
neighbors, or in the nearest village
• Over time, cottage industries arose,
in which a family would produce 1
product (start to finish)
• They traded this product for other
items they needed
Pre-Industrial Cities
• Centers for government and
• Unhealthy
• Lack of sanitation
• Fire hazards
• Contagious diseases
Industrial Revolution
• By the early 1700s, conditions in
England were right for an industrial
• Stable government
• Food supply
• Population increase
• Education/innovation encouraged by
the Enlightenment
Industrial Revolution
• Begins with the textile industry
• Process of making clothing
1. Gather fibers from plants or sheep
2. Spin yarn from fibers
3. Weave cloth from yarn
4. Dye cloth with native materials
5. Cut cloth to size
6. Sew pieces together and add fasteners
hand-made from wood or metals
Industrialization of
the Textile Industry
• In 1733, the flying
shuttle was invented
by John Kay
• It wove fabric using a
machine that wove
more than one strand
at a time
• Spinners were needed
to keep up with the
• Spinsters were hired
In 1765, the
 Spinners spun 1
spinning jenny was
thread at a time,
using a spinning
invented by J.
Hargreaves - it
could spin 100
threads at a time
Industrialization of the Textile
• In 1790, a water powered spinning
jenny was invented
• It no longer fit in the home
• Laborers needed to be hired to work
in the factories
• Capital was needed to build factories
• Factories had to be located near water
Industrialization of the Textile
Industrialization of the Textile
• Adults did not want to
work in factories
• To fill the shortfall,
factories bought paupers,
or orphans to work in
their factories
The Spread of the Industrial
• Products and patents were sold
• Immigrants brought ideas to
new countries
• Espionage was common
• Key Concept 4.2:
Developments in technology,
agriculture, and commerce
precipitated profound changes in
U.S. settlement patterns, regional
identities, gender and family
relations, political power, and
distribution of consumer goods.
I. A global market and
communications revolution,
influencing and influenced by
technological innovations, led to
dramatic shifts in the nature of
agriculture and manufacturing.
A. Innovations including textile
machinery, steam engines,
interchangeable parts, canals,
railroads, and the telegraph, as
well as agricultural inventions,
both extended markets and
brought efficiency to
production for those markets.

Innovations to Farming
• The most wide-ranging
effect came from the
invention of the cotton
• It furthered the
industrialization of the
textile industry by
making cotton readily
Innovations to Farming
• Invented in 1794 by Eli
Whitney, it had many effects
on the country
• Made cotton more
• Planters changed to
growing cotton exclusively
• Planter sought new land,
settled Alabama,
Mississippi, and Louisiana
• Increased dependency on
Innovations to Manufacturing
• Principles of
manufacturing textiles
were soon applied to many
products, from household
items to military arms
• Eli Whitney developed the
idea of manufacturing
interchangeable parts in
• This increased the speed
of production and the ease
of repairing machinery
Energy & Transportation

was invented for
pumping water out of
the mines
• In 1760, James Watts
invented the first
potable, or
commercial steam

York City went from $100 a ton to $10
• Perishable goods became available
further from farms and processing plants
Key Concept 4.2
III. The economic changes caused by
the market revolution had
significant effects on migration
patterns, gender and family
relations, and the distribution of
political power.
A. With the opening of canals and new roads into
the western territories, native-born white citizens
relocated westward, relying on new community
systems to replace their old family and local
B. Migrants from Europe increased the population
in the East and the Midwest, forging strong bonds
of interdependence between the Northeast and
the Old Northwest.
C. The South remained politically, culturally, and
ideologically distinct from the other sections,
while continuing to rely on its exports to Europe
for economic growth.

severe shortages; led to several
Key Concept 4.2, III.
D. The market revolution helped to widen a
gap between rich and poor, shaped
emerging middle and working classes,
and caused an increasing separation
between home and workplace, which led
to dramatic transformations in gender
and in family roles and expectations.
• People were used to being self-employed and did
not want to work in factories
• Factories attracted workers by advertising and
providing lodging
• Single females from farming families became
“Lowell Girls”
• Later replaced by new immigrants
• Middle class of managers and investors began to

Key Concept 4.2, III
E. Regional interests continued to
trump national concerns as the
basis for many political leaders’
positions on economic issues
including slavery, the national
bank, tariffs, and internal
Sectional Differences
The Northern Section
The Northwest (Ohio, Indiana, Illinois,
Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota) depended
on agriculture and agricultural processing
The Northeast (New England and the
middle states) depended on manufacturing
and trade
Key Concept 4.2
II. Regional economic specialization,
especially the demands of
cultivating southern cotton, shaped
settlement patterns and the
national and international
The Northern Section
 The Northwest was influenced by the
climate and fertile soil of the region
Once the mechanical reaper and steel
tipped plow were invented, farming became a
major industry
Agricultural products like whiskey and beer
made preservation of grains easier
Feeding grains to animals provided farmers
with both meat and fat; keeping the animals
alive until slaughter preserved the meat
The Northern Section
• Cities in the Northwest grew up around the
agricultural processing industry
•Cincinnati was a center for hog slaughtering
•Chicago would grow around the cattle
•Grand Rapids would grow around the cereal
/ grain industry
The Northern Section
Goods from the Northwest were
transported primarily by water
They could be floated down-river on
the Ohio, Missouri, and Mississippi to
New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexico
Goods could also be transported
across the Great Lakes to the Erie
Canal, to the Hudson River and the
Atlantic Ocean
The Northern Section
While many people continued to farm in
the Northeast, more and more people moved into
urban areas
The Northeast was the 1st area of the
country to become industrialized
They depended on food and natural
resources from other areas to survive
Their economy revolved around the trade
of processed foods and manufactured goods
The Northern Section
Textile mills and their surrounding
towns grew up in Rhode Island and
Eli Whitney built a manufacturing
plant in Connecticut to make rifles
based on his system of interchangeable
Other plants produced furniture,
clocks, glass and tinware
The Northern Section
• In Lowell, Mass young ladies
earned $3.25 for a 72-hour week
•They were charged $1.25 for
room and board, leaving them
$2.00 for basic necessities
•That is the equivalent of earning
$69.14 per week today!
The Growth of Cities
• Between 1810 and 1840, the percentage of
people living in cities doubled from 6% to 12%
• Approximately 500,000 people lived in
Manhattan in 1850
• Public institutions like hospitals and schools
became more important as people no longer
lived with extended families
The Growth of Cities
• Cities developed neighborhoods for the
rich and poor
• Poor people lived near industrial centers
in overcrowded tenements
• Wealthy people lived ‘uptown’ in cleaner
neighborhoods with parks and
multistoried townhouses
Key Concept 4.2 (II.)
A. Southern cotton furnished the raw
material for manufacturing in the
Northeast, while the growth in
cotton production and trade
promoted the development of
national economic ties, shaped the
international economy, and fueled
the internal slave trade
Southern Farming
• Varied from large plantations to small
• Fertile soil, long growing season, and
humidity made agriculture attractive
• Investment in industry was minimal
• Cities were generally ports
The Cotton Belt
• Delaware
• Maryland
• Virginia
• North Carolina
• South Carolina
• Georgia
The Southern Section
• Cotton was ‘king’
• Pounds of raw cotton produced:
• 1820 - 160 million
• 1830 - 320 million (doubled)
• 1850 - exceeded 1billion
The Southern Section
• Cotton was ‘king’
• Slaves investments
• Slave laws became more restrictive
• Slaves were illegally imported
Southern Economy
• 100% of cotton was grown in the south
• More than 80% of the cotton was
exported to England and New England
• Most cargo ships were built in the north;
most commercial trade enterprises were
from the north
B. Despite some governmental and
private efforts to create a unified
national economy, most notably the
American System, the shift to market
production linked the North and the
Midwest more closely than either was
linked to the South.
American System – (Slide 83)
The West
• Frontier was west of Appalachian Mountains
to the Mississippi River
• Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio
Independent frontiersmen
Needed infrastructure to get goods to market
Produced food crops – sold to South and North

Key Concept 4.3:
U.S. interest in increasing foreign trade,
expanding its national borders, and
isolating itself from European conflicts
shaped the nation’s foreign policy and
spurred government and private

Key Concept 4.2, II
Efforts to exploit the nation’s natural resources led
to government efforts to promote free and forced
migration of various American peoples across the
continent, as well as to competing ideas about
defining and managing labor systems,
geographical boundaries, and natural resources.
**Gold found in Georgia & North Carolina resulted in
the Trail of Tears
The Bank War
