Chapter 11 – Industrial
Inventions early 1800s
Notice how the development
of each invention of the early
1800s affected the young
The Spinning Jenny &
Power Loom
Textile mills brought many workers & machines like these under one
roof in factories powered by water wheels. People left farms for cities
and created the growth of many towns in New England near rivers to
turn the water wheels.
Textile Mills helped growth of
towns in New England states.
Eli Whitney’s Cotton Gin
In 1797, The U. S. government
hired inventor Eli Whitney to
make 10,000 muskets for the
army. He was to have the guns
ready in two years. In 1801, he
showed G. Washington a box
with piles of musket parts. He
took a part from each pile and
assembled a musket in a matter
of seconds. He had just
demonstrated the use of
parts – parts were all exactly
Interchangeable Parts
Parts that are exactly alike was Eli
Whitney’s idea when he tried to put the
musket together in seconds.
Machines that produced exactly
matching parts soon became standard
Made repairs easy
Used low pay and less skilled workers
New Inventions – The
Claremont made the 300 mile trip
from New York to Albany and back in 62 hours in 1807.
The Steam Boat invented by Robert Fulton
Steam engines
The steam boat could move against
the current of the river and the wind
Led to the growth of cities like New
Orleans and St. Louis
Shreve also invented a better steam
boat. The town of Shreveport, LA was
named after this inventor.
Shreve’s double
decker steamboat
and a paddle wheel
in the back 1816 it

Mississippi River!!!
The Telegraph…..
The Telegraph
Invented by Samuel Morse
Long and short pulses of electricity
along a wire ( dot, dot dash…--..)

John Deere’s Steel Plow
John Deer invented the light weight
steel plow with a steel cutting edge.
Older cast iron plows were designed
for the light sandy soil of New England.
But rich clay, like the soil of the
Midwest needed a sharper blade of
steel. More farmers moved to the
Midwest with the help of this new
The Mechanical Reaper
*The Reaper & the threshing
machines helped improve
*They were made by Cyrus
McCormick in 1834.
*The thresher separated
kernels of wheat from husks.
*The reaper cut ripe grain
The Factory System
Workers and machines came together
under one roof, usually near a source
of water to power the machines.
Industrial Revolution
Machines replaced hand tools, and
large scale manufacturing replaced
farming as the main source of work.

SOLE right to make and sell the
