American History Summ. Assessment 5
...How innovation creates change in society
What is innovation?
I believe that innovation is an idea or product that helps (or possibly harms) society.
These are some events (or inventions) that I believe were the most innovative in the years 1800-1830
The Louisiana Purchase
Lewis and Clark
Anyway, the Lewis and Clark Expedition was really innovative. They found new plants and animals, they met and traded with Native American tribes, and they also learned that it was terribly difficult to climb over big rocks. The information that they gathered from this incredible journey helped educate the Americans, and gave settlers who thought about moving west an idea of what they should expect.
The Industrial Revolution
In the next example -- this isn't one of the five, just a little something that I threw in before my chosen invention. Kinda like a transition thing, you know? Never mind, let's get to the invention.
Small note though: You may want to take an interest in Morse code, or else you're just going to hear a bunch of annoying clicking.
In my definition for innovation, I mentioned that sometimes innovation can be bad for society. These last events are the example of bad, or evil, innovation
The Indian Removal Act

THE TELEGRAPH! (part 2!)
This country has had many amazing (and terrible) innovations, and there are going to be so much more! Next thing you know, there'll be flying cars and we'll have servant robots. We'll be living like the Jetsons!
