The 17
th and 18th centuries witnessed major struggles for
freedom and the flow of powers to the civic. The Americans
battled the British for a free nation and to free their thirteen
colonies from the clutches of the English Parliament and King
George III. Back in Europe the French rebellion upheaved the
political system which left the continent shuddering when the
French insurgents executed Louis XVI and his queen and
established a Republican government. Among these vicissitudes
in Europe and America there was another revolution taking its
form which was to bring about a radical change in the history
of all mankind. This revolution brought about a drastic change
in the economics of America and Europe in all the sections;
industrial and agricultural. The phase has been baptized as
"Industrial Revolution". As the economic changed from hands to
machines there was havoc and instigated great tensions and
even vehemence in the society. The alterations brought about
by the Industrial Revolution took rapidity in around mid of 18
th century.
Normally revolution happens in a short period of time but the
Industrial Revolution extended over many generations and the
changes were plodding. What actually happened could be stated
as evolution however; if we look into the dramatic impact of
the industrial drifts on the lives of the Americans, English and
the Continent it was nothing less than a revolution.
It all started from England and the Americans caught on, later
spreading the revolution to other nations of Europe. There
were machinists, tinkerers and inventors who created new
things and eased down the work for mankind.
