The Industrial Revolution Name: Course: Instructor: Date: The term industrialization can as well be referred to as industrial revolution and is a process in history of change from a typically agrarian and handicraft economy to one dominated by machines industries manufacturing and processing plants. The process is said to have begun in Britain in 18th century. The main features involved in the Industrial Revolution were technological socioeconomic and cultural. Industrialization has brought many effects to our society today both positive and negative effects. Though various individuals around the globe contributed to the industrialization my research will focus mainly on Eli Whitney’s contribution to the process. Eli Whitney was born on 8th of December the year 1765 in Westborough. His father was a farmer but he himself proved to be a talented mechanic and an inventor. Among the objects that he designed and built as a youth were a nail whole process of industrialization didn’t just end in the 19th century it is a continuous process and we expect to experience more new and smart inventions as time goes on.

I can provide the e-book I use in class with information for the topic. Eli Whitney is the craftsman/inventor of my interest in accordance to the families' of slaves, factory workers, handy men and textile workers that were impacted with the modernization of technology. There's a small file I attached titled "Industrial Rev Research Outline". Please follow and answer question #2 on the History Research file. If Eli Whitney's invention does NOT answer the question fully, please address the families of cotton and garment production workers that were effected. Include, influences of the enlightenment, agricultural revolution and the benefits, positive impacts as well as negative impacts of the industrial revolution with regards to the families and its effect on the modern era, in which we live in today.
