PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This is a bundle of 2 highly animated, power point presentations on Industrialization & Urbanization - Immigration & Growth of Cities. Both presentations together number 54 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change them to fit your individual needs.

As immigration exploded, urban populations surged from 6 million in 1860 to 42 million in 1910. Big cities got bigger: Chicago tripled in size in the 1880s and 1890s. By 1900 three cities contained more than a million people: New York (3.5 million), Chicago (1.7 million), and Philadelphia (1.3 million).

In the late 19th century, industry invaded the cities. Previously, cities had served as commercial centers for rural hinterlands and were frequently located on rivers, lakes, or oceans. Manufacturing occurred outside their limits—usually near power sources, such as streams, or natural resources, such as coal.

As industry grew, cities changed. Chicago, had been a railroad center that served the upper Midwest as a shipping hub for lumber, meat, and grain; by 1870 it had taken the lead in steel production as well as meatpacking. Atlanta, another railroad hub and commercial center, also developed a diverse manufacturing sector.

End of Presentation

Late 19th-century immigrants left their European homes to escape economic problems—scarce land, growing populations, and the decline of subsistence farming. They came to the United States in hope of economic gain. Most settled in the United States permanently, but others came only to amass some capital and then return home.

Record numbers of immigrants arrived in the United States, some 9 million from 1880 to 1900, and 13 million from 1900 to 1914. 1865 - 1885, immigrants arrived mainly from western Europe. The largest groups came from England, Ireland, Germany, and Scandinavia. 1885 - 1914, immigrants arrived mainly southern, eastern, and central Europe.

Many new immigrants were Slavs—Poles, Czechs, Russians, Ukrainians, Croatians—and others, including Jews, from the Austro-Hungarian and Russian empires. Among the new immigrants were also Greeks, Romanians, and Italians, mainly from southern Italy or Sicily.
