Textile Industry

The textile industry is the design and mass production of yarn, cloth, clothing, and their distribution. Samuel Slater made the first textile mill in the United States. The industrial Revolution was that people started to invent/use machines to do the work instead of making things that were created by hand which was time consuming.


The Transportation Revolution

The transportation revolution brought a period of rapid growth in the speed and convenience of travel, because of new methods of transportation such as using steamboats and steam powered trains. It made it possible to get almost anywhere there is a railroad track or water source leading from one place to another.
