Kristina L. Swider  Mr. Darrel McGhee  HIST 2020 28 January 2016  During the late 1800’s and the 1900’s, industrialization swept through the United States.  There were a lot of pluses that came with industrialization, but there were also a lot of problem  that surfaced. There were many different things that helped start industrialization in the U.S.  Living conditions were not ideal during this time, people were living in some pretty unreal  conditions, but also at the same time cities were building up. Many different reforms also helped  form the U.S. into the country it is today.  It became easier in the 1800’s for people to get around. The first cars started making their way on the market for people to purchase, the developers main concern was a way to sell a car,  but make sure the cost of the car was a low cost. Planes were developed thanks to Orville and  Wilbur Wright, but the question was, how could someone profit from the airplane? One of the  biggest transportation inventions was the railroad. This was an easier way for people to get from  point A to point B. It was also a great way for hauling goods. Also, people like John D.  Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie made their appearance.  Changes in cities were the next thing to come along. Skyscrapers started being built.  When it came to construction, they saw that the more you build up, the weaker the structure  becomes, so they skyscrapers started being built with steel. Living conditions were not very  ideal. Two families would be sharing a two story house. Each family would be assigned to one  level of the house, but when it came to cooking, using the bathroom and also taking a shower,  family members would have to share the facilities down in the basement. Diseases and  sicknesses were spreading like wildfire. The death rate was higher than the birth rate at this  point. The sewage system was awful. Due to horse drawn carriages, horse manure basically  covered the road, so the smell in the city was unbearable, so people started moving to the  suburbs.  Then comes the 1900’s, everyone had their own way of thinking. Karl Marx came out  with his views on communism, Darwin on his evolution of science and Freud with people  repressing their real feelings and actions.  Many laws were being passed. AMA (American  Medical Association), this law was passed to ensure that not just anyone could become a doctor.  In order to be a doctor these people have to have a license and the credentials it took. It was now  the citizens right to vote for their senators. Also, prohibition was passed. This is where it became  illegal for citizens to consume alcohol.  Many things help make and break industrialization in the United States. Between  horrible, but expanding living conditions, the many different laws that were being passed for all  citizens to obey and all the different opportunities that helped start industrialization. Even though all this helped start the United States to become a country, some of these laws are still in motion  today.
