All three presentations together number 69 slides. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
What historians commonly call the Agricultural Revolution began in the early 1700s with an Englishman, Jethro Tull, inventing a machine that planted seeds in neat rows called the seed drill. Advances in agriculture had been slowly infiltrating agricultural Europe since Medieval times. Advances in farming were absolutely vital in order for Europe to maintain and feed a rapidly growing population.
The Industrial Revolution was the practical application of many of the advancing movements of the previous generations. The Renaissance created a thirst for knowledge. The Scientific Revolution resulted from the seeking of new knowledge beyond that understood by the ancients. The Industrial Revolution took many ideas of the Scientific Revolution and applied them directly to the daily life of individuals.
Though disruptive in its early years, the Industrial Revolution, coupled with free markets, helped bring prosperity to the developed world.

The 1st Industrial Revolution, which took place from the 18th to 19th centuries, was a period during which predominantly agrarian, rural societies in Europe and America became industrial and urban. Prior to the Industrial Revolution, which began in Britain in the late 1700s, manufacturing was often done in people’s homes, using hand tools or basic machines.
Industrialization marked a shift to powered, special-purpose machinery, factories and mass production. Before the advent of the Industrial Revolution, most people resided in small, rural communities where their daily existences revolved around farming. Life for the average person was difficult, as incomes were meager, and mal-nourishment and disease were common.
People produced the bulk of their own food, clothing, furniture and tools. Most manufacturing was done in homes or small, rural shops, using hand tools or simple machines. Industrialization spread from Britain to other European countries, including Belgium, France and Germany, and to the United States.
By the mid-19th century, industrialization was well-established throughout the western part of Europe and America’s northeastern region. By the early 20th century, the U.S. had become the world’s leading industrial nation.

Between 1820 and 1860 the 2nd Industrialization transformed the visual map of the United States by unprecedented urbanization and rapid territorial expansion. These changes mutually fueled the Second Industrial Revolution which peaked between 1870 and 1914.
The Annexation of Texas (1845), the British retreat from Oregon country, and the Treaty of Guadalupe-Hidalgo (1848) which cemented Mexican cession of the Southwest to the United States saw unprecedented territorial expansion.
The need for massive industry was obvious: in order to reach California’s burgeoning port cities like San Francisco and to expedite the extraction of gold from the mines, railroad tracks would need to be laid across the plains to reach the Pacific and open up trade networks. Questions abounded regarding the character this new American territory would take
