The Industrial Revolution

The Revolution That Changed America

Background Information

In the Industrial Revolution, there were many pros but there were also many cons. The cons showed people the bad side of the Industrial Revolution but people need to focus more on the good side and realize that America has learned from our mistakes. Overall, the pros of the Industrial Revolution made America a much more greater country.
Although there were many cons during the Industrial Revolution, such as child labor, injuries, and low pay, the pros still outweigh the cons. Without job opportunities, inventions, and mass production, America would not be what it is today.
