The Time Period Where Their Accomplishments Took Place

The time period where the Wright Brothers accomplishments took place in was 1892-1910. During this time period a lot of different inventions was coming to life. For example commercial production for automobiles, science fiction films, medicines and vaccines were created to help with the global influenza epidemic, and much more. With all of these inventions come out the Wright Brother wanted to get involved with all the excitements. Also they had a massive impact on World War 1. With their inventions of the airplane it gave the United States government the encouragement for mass production of airplanes. By doing this it was seen as a potential powerful weapon and reconnaissance vehicle. When the war broke out in 1914 there was something new on the battlefield, which was never there before, airplane technology. This brought a massive up rising for wartime economy. Thinking that this all got started from two brother playing with toy airplanes in their room to the most powerful creation we see in our military, the air force. Without our air buddies we would struggle to the point where the whole military would be changed for ever.

From A Fascination, To Developing What Is Know, The World

Their contribution was important to everyone because it changed our view on American lifestyle. When you hear the words "wealthy people" what comes to mind? That they have lots of money and don't really know how of what to spend it on. Well, one of the things that they spend it on is private planes. They use it to travel all over the world and see things that many people don't get the opportunity to see, but you don't have to be wealthy to fly in an airplane. You probably wont get all the luxurious treatments as they do, but you do get to see the world and what it has to offer. Back in this time period many people didn't give a vacation or seeing the world a second thought. They probably wanted to see different things, but couldn't because transportation wasn't there. Another example of how they contributed to making America so great is once the airplane was created it went on from more advanced airplanes to jets to helicopters. With helicopters this could help people that are in critical conditions. The ideas today are endless.

From The Wright Brothers To American Culture

With everything that the Wright Brothers have done to make American culture what it is today, it would of never happened if the fascination with airplanes never occurred. Like before the idea of vacation never excised until the idea of flight came to life. When you look back and see what families and individuals did, they just really stayed in one area. They never really got to see what the world is made of. What is really out there for everyone to experience. This change American culture in the way that families and individuals can see not only the united States, but the world. In a way it shows people what their lives can have. They can see, meet, and try new things. American culture is about having people become their own and bring new ideas to the table. Without it you don't have America you have nothing. Everyone in this world wants to be happy and be successful in their own way and a great way to start is by being able to see what the world has to offer.
