EPISODE SUMMARY FROM THE HISTORY CHANNEL:
America becomes a nation just as a revolution in commerce and industry sweeps across the western world. This vast new country, rich in resources, experiences rapid changes – in trade, transport and manufacturing – and America quickly turns into one of the wealthiest nations on earth.

The Erie Canal creates a vital pathway through the nation in 1825, New York City booms, the factory town of Lowell becomes the cradle of the American industrial revolution and in the South the cotton gin streamlines the process of separating seeds from the fibers and sets off a manufacturing explosion.

Though some are united in prosperity, the United States is divided by culture, and the crisis over whether to allow slavery to spread reaches a breaking point. There are violent clashes in Kansas. John Brown carries out a suicidal mission to try to end slavery in Virginia in 1859. He fails. After the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860, war seems inevitable.
