Industrialization is the widespread development of profitmaking businesses that manufacture products on a large scale, using labor-saving machinery. Understanding the history of the development of industrialization in the United States, which took place over two centuries, involves learning about some of its technical elements, such as technology and the economy. But the history of U.S. industrialism is also a dramatic story of people rising and falling from power or struggling desperately to make the world a better place. Industrialization fueled the national culture, economy, daily life, and politics, creating such tremendous social changes that it is impossible to imagine what life in the United States would be like without it. Though the Industrial Revolution, a period of rapid industrial growth causing a shift in focus from agriculture to industry, first began in England and Europe in the middle of the eighteenth century, industrialization did not begin to take root in the United States until after the American Revolution (1775–83). Even then American industrialization had a slow start, due to overwhelming obstacles. At the time, the vast majority of ix Americans lived independent lives as farmers in remote areas. For the most part, they had little connection with anyone but neighboring farmers, since there were few good roads or systems of communication. Most people did not even own clocks; time was determined by the seasons and the rising and setting of the sun. Few people worked for wages, and those manufactured goods Americans could afford generally came from Europe. The new nation had vast natural resources, such as land, timber, metals, minerals, water power, and ports, but without transportation or manufacturing it was nearly impossible to make industrial use of them.
