FC: ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE | Made by JASON SAINTIZAIRE

1: THE INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION BEGAN IN NEW ENGLAND. NEW ENGLAND HAD MANY RIVERS AND STREAMS SO, THAT PROVIDED THE CAPABILITY TO RUN MACHINERY IN THE NEW FACTORIES. NEW ENGLAND WAS NEARBY SOURCES SUCH AS COAL AND IRON NEARBY PENNSYLVANIA. ALSO THEY HAD MANY PORTS THAT HAD SHIPPING FROM SOUTHERN STATES. | The Industrial Revolution in New England

2: INVENTIONS SUCH AS THE SPINNING JENNY AND THE WATER FRAME WHICH SPUN THREAD AND THE POWER LOOM, WHICH WOVE THREAD INTO CLOTH MADE IT POSSIBLE TO PERFORM MANY STEPS IN MAKING CLOTH, WHICH SAVED THE TIME AND MONEY NEEDED. SINCE THE NEW MACHINES WERE FUNCTIONED BY WATERPOWER MOST MILLS WERE NEAR RIVERS. IN 1785, A COTTON GIN WAS POWERED BY A STEAM ENGINE FOR THE FIRST TIME. | In 1793 Eli Whitney of Massachusetts invented the cotton gin, a simple machine that quickly and efficiently removed the seeds from the cotton fiber. The cotton gin enabled one worker to clean cotton as fast as 50 people working by hand | NEW TECHNOLOGY

3: Pioneers would travel by the means of using a stage coach or traveling by water on a boat. Traveling to the west was very difficult task in the late 1790's and early 1800's. There were turnpikes or, toll roads that you would pay for. Many roads were made of crushed stone. Other roads that were filled with mud were line with logs (corduroy roads). | Western travel

4: Advantages It was far more comfortable than travel over bumpy roads Pioneers could load all their goods on the river barges-if they were heading downstream in the direction of the current | Difficulties Most major rivers in the region flowed in a north to south direction, not a east to west direction, where most people were headed. Traveling upstream by the barge against the current was extremely difficult and slow | River Travel

5: Americans moved westward in waves. The first wave began before the 1790s and led to the admission of four new states between 1791 and 1803-Vermont, Kentucky, Tennessee,Ohio. The second wave of westward growth began between 1816 and 1821. Five new western states were created-Indiana, Illinois, Mississippi, Alabama, and Missouri. The new states reflected the dramatic growth of the region west of the Appalachians. America's population continued to spread westward in the years ahead. | Western settlement
