The industrial Revolution brought a lot of changes to the process of industrialization. It was a revolution in every sense of term. Although, some of the changes benefited society, others may have caused harm to most of society. The gains of the industrial revolution in England from the 1780s to the 1850s, some may have said it was not worth the pain that they had to experience, which affected the working class of England.

In the 1820s is when it spread to the United States, but delayed until the country had enough labors and money to invest in business. There was war in 1861-1865, until the 1870s.

I most defiantly cannot imagine life without it. The industrial revolution really made the world a lot more efficient. Most of the things we use now passed through some sort of factory. I’ve stated previously that the industrial revolution made a way for all the new generation without the sacrifices we would still be under. Yes, somethings that they had to experience probably was not worth the pain and suffering but eventually things started to change. Things started to become more equal for people and a lot of things didn’t change because a lot of things are still happening in the world. Not a lot
