The story

The Industrial Revolution first began in Britain where the textile industry was born. Clothes were made at mass production , causing Britain to become very wealthy. Once this news had reached America, they decided to enter the textile industry.This made us rich but, wealth comes with a negative cost.

To Conclude

To Conclude, Although there are several pros to the Industrial Revolution, such as, Inventions, Job Opportunities, and Mass Production that helped evolve the country. The negative aspects counterbalance the positive aspects because of the child labor, long working hours, & poor factory conditions.
