What is something you learned in this lesson that
you think is important?
New Gadgets
06.01 Innovations
The Industrial Revolution and how it impacted
American infrastructure and economy- beginning in
New England due to their lack of dependence on
agriculture, resource proximity, ports, waterways,
and wealthy investors.
06.02 Factory
The beginning of child labor (extensive use of child
labor, specifically), starting with Samuel Slater and
his factory system, exploiting cheaper, adept children.
Urban Bay
06.03 Growing
As immigrants moved in, looking for work, city
populations grew- especially as agricultural success
prompted population growth, and the demand for
resources- like housing, piping, fuel, meant that the
housing was poor- people lived in tenements,
crowded into small places with thin walls, the
absence of sufficient pipes meant the absence of
running water and sewage in the streets, not to
mention diseases like typhoid, and the excess use of
fuel for heating and transportation contributed to
06.04 A Southern
The demand for more and more food and resources
for the Northern factories led to deforestationleading to the extinction of several animals- and
eventually the Seminole Wars, as the Natives were
pushed out of their land with treaties and also the
Indian Removal Act of 1830.
06.05 Jacksonian
The ‘Jacksonian Era’- the age of the common man,
where President Jackson upheld his strict beliefs as
per his party’s, and faced many issues concerning
tariffs, the national bank, supreme court cases, and
06.06 War on the
The two important cases in the history of the
Supreme Court- McCulloch vs. Maryland and Gibbons
vs. Ogden and how they forever impacted
relationships and responsibilities of the national vs.
state governments.

How did the Industrial
Revolution begin?
Why did the Industrial Revolution start in New England?
It started in New England because the farmers could not
have successful farms because of the climate, so they turned
to working in factories. The abundance of resources like coal
and iron promoted industrialization, as well as the
availability of ports, and streams and rivers for
transportation and energy. The wealthy investors in the area
also promoted the revolution, as they invested in factories
and projects.
How did Samuel Slater, Eli Whitney and Francis Cabot
Lowell impact the Industrial Revolution?
Samuel Slater​- He smuggled textile factory machines and
ideas into the US to use in his own factory- using ideas like
the assembly line production.
Francis Cabot Lowell​- Visited factories in England and
made diagrams of the machines there and took them back to
the US, expanding on Slater’s mill, and essentially put all the
stages of making cloth in one factory.
Eli Whitney​- He invented the cotton gin, which allowed
unskilled people to remove the seeds from the cotton
efficiently, making cotton cheap and easy to make.
Who worked in the
What was life like for child factory workers?
The child workers were overworked and put in hazardous
conditions, and were paid very less; since they were
children, factory owners got away with giving them low
wages for their intense work.
Who were the “Lowell Girls”?
The Lowell Girls were the young, unmarried women
employed by Francis Cabot Lowell, making up 80% of his
workforce, lured into the job by the prospect of
independence and female companionship.
How did the Industrial
Revolution change cities?
How does Philadelphia represent the changes cities
Philadelphia exhibited the changes associated with the rapid
industrialization, including- poor housing and piping,
disease, cultural diversity, lack of resources, the increasing
workforce, violence outbreaks due to frustration, poverty,
the opening of charities-like the Southwark Soup Society, the
evolution of transportation and public services.
What were the negative effects of urbanization?
Air pollution due to the increased use of coal as fuel, factory
waste polluting the environment, piping issues causing
uncontrolled sewage in the streets, causing diseases, and the
overcrowded population promoting disease.
How did life change in
Florida throughout the
What’s the difference between renewable and
non-renewable resources? What are examples of each?
Renewable resources are resources that can’t run out- you
can’t use them up- like sunlight or wind. Non-renewable
resources appear in limited quantities on Earth and can take
thousands of years to replenish- like coal or oil.
Who are the Seminoles and Black Seminoles?
The Seminoles were a tribe moved to Central Florida by the
government, and the Black Seminoles were descendants of
free or runaway slaves who formed communities with the
Seminole Indians.
What happened in the
elections of 1824 and
What were the differences between Democratic-Republicans
and National Republicans?
Democratic-Republicans (today’s Republicans) believed that
a strong central government was a threat to individual
rights, and believed in a strict reading of the constitution,
and therefore disapproving of a National Bank, as the power
to create one is not expressly written in the constitution, and
also of the funding of internal improvements projects for
individual states, because it isn’t national improvement and
causes conflict and division.
National Republicans (today’s Democrats) believed in a
strong central government ensuring national unity, and also
in a loose reading of the Constitution- open to
interpretation- and so supported the National Bank, and
internal improvement projects.
Why was there a power
struggle between the
states and the federal
Why is the case of ​McCulloch v. Maryland​ important?
The ruling in favor of McCulloch established a precedent for
federal and state relationships, and established approval for
the idea of ‘implied powers’ in the Constitution, also
establishing that the state cannot challenge the power of the
federal government.
Why is the case of ​Gibbons v. Ogden​ important?
The ruling in favor of Gibbons again established a precedent,
this time for Congress to have the ability to override a state
law that is in conflict with federal law, and extended the
definition of commerce to include navigation, also giving the
federal government some control within and across state
How does the government influence the economy?
It can impose tariffs, it is responsible for providing legal and
social structures- like schools, it is also responsible for
correcting the side effects of growth. It stabilizes the
economy. The tariffs of 1828, 1832, and 1833 established the
tariffs imposed by the federal government. The act of moving
$10 million from the 2nd national bank to the state bank by
President Jackson caused inflation, and the Coinage Act,
forcing people to exchange their paper money for gold and
silver caused an economic depression- the Panic of 1837.
