  1. The industrial revolution was able to start in England and not any where else in the world because of the social classes in place which helped with labor assignments and jobs. In addition to this the use of cattle and animals for industrialization was something they employed that many other countries had not done.

    • I like how you not only just talked about how the revolution affected the social classes but talking about how it affected them like the cattle and how it was hard to even get a thing of bread,

    • I see your point, but the industrial revolution was actually a turning point of social classes; they weren’t really developed in a place where it benefitted the revolution. Workers became less skilled and lower in class.

      • Inalso agree with you it was a huge turning and important part of the industrial rev. Moving up in social classes n also how workers were in fact less skilled . Way to point that out

    • i like how you also instill how the use of cattle was an aiding factor in the revolution and the fact that you expand on the fact that the revolution aided in labor assignments.

    • You made a good point saying how England’s social classes was a reason the Industrial revolution started in England. There were child laborers which had to work almost all day. There were a loan women workers that was new to the society. This made production in factories increase with lots of people working in different gender and age groups.

    • I was elated by the way you talked about how the social classes also came into play hand in hand with the labor assignments and the jobs as well as cattle. The textile production also kick started it.

    • I like how you mentioned that cows and animals being used to help start up the industrial revolution. However, the banks are also extremely important in this start up. Also the farms being converted into one efficient farm was important.

  2. The Industrial revolution originated in England with its factors of mechanical advancements and enforcement of cattle and mule. Trains were concieved here with the discovery of energy from burning coal with Steam thanks to James Watt in 1765. As textiles and cotton became a large contendor for self resources, workers became needed and formatted into cogs in a larger economical factory system. Compared to other countries at this era, Asia and the middle east were concerned (and still is in some parts) with territorial protection and assult; France is rebooting its government and social class in general; America was focused on the western expansion and colonization; Nortern countries like Norway and Sweden were adapting to political changes in monarchy than society impact.

    • I really liked how you talked about the use of cattle, because I feel like that was an important part of the revolution. I also agree with what you said about the factory system.

    • I have not thought that the discovery of machines helped the revolution, since I was just thinking about the resources that Britain had. It is interesting to know that the discoveries also helped with the Industrial Revolution.

  3. The industrial revolution began in England, of all places. Most people would think, “Why England?” However, England was the perfect place. Because of the agricultural revolution, the population of England had grown exponentially. They also began to have financial innovations like central banks, which encouraged more people to take risks. They also had lots of natural resources like coal, which helped them power their factories. Because of these factors and many others, the industrial revolution began in England.

    • I agree with you that a main reason for Britain becoming an industrial power is due to the luck they had of the many coal deposits in their country. If not for those natural resources then they would have only had the ambition but not the means to fuel steam powered machines.

    • I like how you mentioned the population growth as a factor of the industrialization because it was such a key point that no one really remembers. I also agree with your financial stability point

    • I really liked what you said about how England’s financial innovations contributed to the revolution because I completely agree. You made some valuable points.

    • I like how you emphasized on how important central banks were in the industrial revolution.

    • I agree, a lot of factors allowed England to excel but coal was the main overriding factor that gave them the upper hand first because coal = steam power, which means more factories.

    • I like how you put the agricultural revolution because I believe that it had a huge role for the industrial revolution.

    • i think it’s import that you stated the fact of the agricultural revolution and the creation of modern banks, as both factors played great roles in developing the revolution.

    • I liked how you utilized a rhetorical question in order to relate the audience more to the topic of the Industrial Revolution. Also, I agree with the way you stated that the people were encouraged to take risks because this played a persuasive role in the start of the Industrial Revolution.

    • This is very true. I think Banking Systems have a lot to do with the Revolution and the way it operates now. The new changes, everything in its entirety is pretty significant for for the huge impact it will leave later. 🙂

    • I really liked how you drew us in to your response with the first sentence. I also liked how you used good information .

    • I like how you mentioned the agricultural side of the revolution because that was extremely important. I like how you mentioned the centralized banks. However I think that the discovering of America was extremely important in providing Britain with resources as well. Also the streams and rivers were extremely important.

  4. There are two main reason that England was able to successfully start the Industrial Revolution. The first was the wealth that the British companies were able to gain from the many trade agreements and colonies they had. This provided the funds to start such a large scale protect as steam powered machines in factories. The second was the geographical luck of the many coal deposits in England. This provided the power needed to run the factories and machines needed for the mass production of goods. There where other coal deposits in places like China, but it was the availability and the stronger government of the British that allowed as an effective industrial power in Europe.

    • I completely agree with what you said about steam playing a large factor, as well as coal deposits because I believe that these resources were crucial to the start of the revolution.

  5. The industrial began in England for many reasons. It started off with the textiles and the fact that It required a large amount of people to produce those items. The need and the want increased as the population grew. As the population grew more products were needed. The British had a large amount of money to be able to do this from trade agreements they had lots of sources such as coal that helped fuel their favorites to produce even more materials. Also cotton had such a high but this domestic production system could not keep up with the growing demands of England’s growing population. Instead, starting in the late 18th century, a series of innovations shifted textile production to a new factory system.

    • I like all your points. I found it interesting how you pointed out cottons significance. I also liked how you made several statements about population.

    • It did start off with the textile production. It’s truly fascinating to see that people had grown in the population and because of the British exposure to resources they were able to do what they had done.

    • I liked how you pointed out the textile contribution to the revolution as it was one of the biggest ones and is so often forgotten. I also liked how you mentioned coal and fuel to complete their jobs because that was an important role in the revolution as well and no one really thinks about that either.

    • I found it quite interesting how you added the production of cotton! I did not remember this point until reading this. I did like your explanation because it was rather thorough and helped settle some of my confusion towards the topic.

    • I found it really interesting how you pointed out key points and benefits of the revolution. The British had lots of money to help everyone. You’re explaination was great!

    • I agree with all your points made. The textiles were a major part in the industrial revolution. I like how you mentioned cotton cause it reminds people that many great inventions were created during the industrial revolution.

  6. For the industrial Revolution to taken place, you need mass production of goods in factories. For factories to function you also need workers. Britain had just undergone an Agricultural Revolution with land being enclosed and farm workers , small holders being displaced. They migrated to the Towns to find work, making up the work force. But this could and did happen in other countries, so why Britain? The answer to that is tea. The Britsh where drinking tea and living longer than other Europeans. Tea kills germs and will strengthen your immune system. Therefore, people live longer and they gain skills. They become more productive workers

    • I like how you mentioned the displacement of small farmers because without that happening the demand for labor would be low and the industrial revolution would have happened much slower or maybe not happened at all if that were the case.

    • I like the points you make on why the industrial revolution happened in England but you left a few key points out. You should have mentioned that England had easy access to Iron, Coal and lime stone to make these new machines and products. Also England had people who were creating these new machines to be used in the factory. Last of all England had easy travel from the cities to the sea through massive rivers that often power the factories to produce the good. That is why England was the first country to experience the industrial revolution.

    • I thoroughly enjoy thos response as it provides a unique and creative response. This looks beyond the typical reasons and focuses more on the individual themselves. This brings a fresh perspective to this question and provides a basis for debate.

  7. The industrial revolution began in England because of population growth, because of the Agricultural Revolution which increased demand for products like clothing. The Enlightenment encouraged new ideas for new technological advancements, and also encouraged women to work. Because coal and iron were plentiful in Britain, it allowed mass production of products because steam powered machinery relied on coal. These were all important factors in why the industrial revolution began in England.

    • I completely agree with your point on how the agricultural revolution was a main cause to the industrial revolution. I also agree with how the Enlightenment. I liked how you mentioned the reliance on coal and iron.

    • I agree that the population growth helped with the workers for the factory workers; it is interesting to know!

    • I like how you reference the history of the agricultural revolution and also the enlightenment ideas that kick-started all of these changes in society. You directly mention coal and iron, which are still very important today. You understand this topic well, so that is good and it is shown through your answer to this discussion.

    • The emphasis on the circulation of such metallurgy and minerals assists in springing this argument today. The distinct factor of human moral and minerals centered the start of the industrial era. Agreed.

  8. The industrial revolution began with the invention of steam power.Steam power used coal to boil water and create steam that powered things such as railroads and to hold up to the high demand for things such as textiles. Therefore England was able to gain a head start because these devices were first invented in England and on top of that England had a high amount of coal deposits than other areas around the world, allowing them to be the first country to effectively start the industrial revolution in the early 19th century.

    • I really like how you focused your post on the steam engine! It’s really cool how you stayed on one topic, but gave a broadened answer about steam engines, and other inventions that came about as a result of them, such as railroads. I agree on how the steam engine was a big part in the beginning of the industrial revolution.

    • I totally agree with you 100%. I really liked how you brought the inventions into your answer because yeah they did make a way into the industrial revolution to start in England.

  9. The Industrial began in England. The rise of the population during the Agricultural Revolution increased the need of goods. Another important factor was the Enlightenment because it offered new ideas and new processes to help push the population into a new age. The British had the wealth and working population to give jobs. This revolution added to the economy and improved the trade markets. It started with textiles and went to cars. The amount of resources they had, like coal which had let the factories be powered and are able work.

  10. The Industrial Revolution was able to start off in England instead of other places for a variety of reasons. A key aspect of why it was capable of starting off here is because England had recently undergone the Agricultural Revolution. Because of this, there was a massive population growth, which meant there was a massive amount of workers looking for jobs. England also had a variety of natural resources, which included coal. This created a promising framework for industrialization and aided the economy in supporting an expanding iron production system. It is also emphasized how there was a much larger demand for goods, which increased the need or want for industrialization.

    • I like the point you made, and I completely agree with your statement. I like how you mentioned the large supply of coal that they had.

    • I agree with all of your points they do explain why the industrialization happened in England first. But you did not mention how people in England were creating the new technology to allow for the country to go into the industrialization. But besides that I like your points on why England had the industrialization first before any other country.

    • I like how you added the history of the agricultural revolution in your answer because it shows how history repeats itself and learns from every event. You covered all the bases of the industrial revolution, so your answer is good and easy to understand.

    • I like how you emphasized the importance of natural resources, and the importance of population growth in the industrial revolution.

    • I like how you started out with the Agricultural Revolution and how it had recently finished in England. I agree with how you talked about the growth in population and influx in job amounts.

  11. The Industrial Revolution was able to start in England before any other country because they had the resources that could aid its growth, including coal and iron, which played huge roles in industrialization. Also, population growth allowed there to be more workers which helped England’s economy overall. The Agricultural Revolution also led to the increase in unemployed people who needed jobs and the Industrial Revolution gave them the opportunity for new jobs. During this time, England was extremely wealthy and their economy continued to grow.

    • I agree that not only did natural resources play a role in the industrial revolution in Britain but also in the work and labor forces themselves,

  12. I would say that the Industrial Revolution began in England because of the agricultural revolution, the population as well and the financial innovations. There were new inventions such as central banks which encouraged the public to take action. Also the burning of coal and the use of steam.

    • I agree that centralized bankers greatly helped the industrial revolution. Also, didn’t the enclosure movement play a huge part in the revolution because it allowed for a larger labor force for the factories? I like how you mentioned that the burning of coal and invention of steam were extremely important.

  13. Why was Industrial Revolution able to start in England and not anywhere else in the world?
    The Industrial Revolution was able to start in England and not anywhere else in the world because England had the resources to kick start the revolution. England had coal, lumber, ore, canals, and railways. Also, England had fast streams that allowed transportation as well as the ability to power factories. England had the most developed banking system in Europe. They offered loans with minimal interest which allow for entrepreneurs to start new business empires. England also had the encloser movement in which small farms were bought out to create big, efficient farms. This put some farmers out of work. These farmers took jobs at the newly built factory. Therefore England was the only place the Industrial Revolution could begin because they had resources, a labor force, and a banking system.

    • I think it was really great for you to mention the rapid waters of these streams. They made a huge difference because they provided the energy to make the factory system work. It is also important to note, on top of what you already stated, that resources were important as well due to some of them being used to make the machines that are in factories.

    • I completely agree! I really like how you mentioned all of the resources that they had such as coal, lumber, and ores that aided in beginning the revolution. I also like how you mentioned the steam engines part in facilitating transportation of goods. Another thing you mentioned that is key is the fact that there was a large population that needed jobs because of the farmers whom were put out of work.

  14. The Industrial Revolution started in England because England they were island nation that was surrounded by water ( Great Britain) that provided energy for the factories. They also contained sources such as iron ore, coal and limestone for building and operating the machinery. Also, the enclosure movement provided tons of workers for factories; due to the government producing large farm lands for new agricultural techniques.

    • I like how you state the more geographical reasons instead of the social and economic reason because I feel it mostly started because that was the most ideal place to start industrialization.

    • I would comment that I did also appreciate you mentioning the geographic benefits! Also it slipped my mind that the coal and limestone etc were a crucial item to fuel the machinery.

    • I like how you mentioned the nation being surrounded by water. This was a main factor of the revolution because of the growth in the agriculture and the increase of population.

    • I like how you discussed how England is a country surrounded by water. Water made a huge difference because this allowed them to be able to import and export. This also allowed for them to have a transportation system. I also liked that you included raw materials because that played an important role like the enclosure movement.

  15. The industrial revolution started in England as a result of the want for textiles. The reason why it was able to start in England and not anywhere else was first of all due to how nothing was more than 90 miles from the sea. This way, they were able to have raw materials necessary for the industrial revolution. Due to Britain’s access of iron ore and limestone, the metals were used for the machinery for the factories. There was also the impact of the enclosure movement which forced small farmers off the land which made the population in cities very dense; thus there would be people to work the factories. Overall the fact that England has access to raw materials and everything was 90 miles from the sea, made the industrial revolution possible.

  16. The industrialization happen only in England because they had all of the parts needed for the industrialization. They had people leaving life on the farm and big Families owning the majority of the land. This produced a large work force because people were moving into cities. England also had large suns of raw material mainly coal, iron ore and limestone. This allowed for the introduction of more and new machines to produce material. But They had the last thing which was people creating new technology for the industrialization. This all allowed England to enter the industrialization before anyone else had.

  17. The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain in the 1700s. The reason that Britain had the first Industrial Revolution is that the country contained all of the necessary resources and locations which are needed in order for an Industrial Revolution. They had access to a large number of ports and families leaving the farmland to own larger portions of land. This allowed for a growth in the amount of food being produced because it allowed for farmers to experiment with more crops. This access to large food portions was sided with the large amounts of coal and limestone being mined. These materials allowed for more machines to produce more materials. They also had plenty of people creating newer technology which ultimately drove Britain into their Industrial Revolution

    • I agree; the farmland was definitely a positive aspect that allowed them to develop factories and mills in a more efficient manner.

  18. The industrial revolution was able to start because before the industrial revolution, the agricultural revolution had happened. The agricultural revolution set favorable climate for the industrial revolution to start. Main reason was because it was influenced by other revolutions.

  19. The industrial revolution was able to start in Britain because Britain had all the necessary resources for possible inventions and buildings, such as iron, coal, limestone etc. Also there were able to build large scale projects and be able to invent inventions because of the wealthy businesses that could provide getting those resources.

    • I agree and think this is a strong point that i had not thought of before. It is truly an important part to the revolution becuase without it the workers would not be able to produce much of anything at all.

    • I like your addition of limestone to your description of the industrial revolution. You summarized the topic very well and it is easy to understand the background to the change in society.

  20. The industrial revolution began in England because they had the most resources compared to the other strong nations of the time. England was prospering and not recovering after any major wars, and they had a social class structure already in place. The industrial revolution strengthened these classes and widened a gap between them all. There were many wealthy people in England at the time, allowing businessmen to monopolize the markets and make for concepts like capitalism and free economics prosper.

    • I agree I think the structure England already had was just grown more through the advancements of industrial revolution.

    • I agree since the industrial revolution origin was in England they did have more resources compared to other countries.

  21. The industrial revolution started in England. It did not start anywhere else because, Britain had many harbors that did not go more than 90 miles. This allowed much trade and advancement. Along with the flow of the water the exportation of goods was much faster. England also was very much involved with another nations which was a contributing factor to the increase economically and socially. The fortunate resources of coal, iron, and steel was also a contributing factor to this growth in comparison to other countries such as railway systems.

    • I like how you mentioned the trading and the benefits of the industrial revolution. Also the ways that it benefited Britain in its geography.

  22. The Industrial Revolution began in England because they had easy access to materials such as iron ore, coal and limestone. They also had developed road and canal systems that were good for transporting materials more efficiently. These factors enabled England to industrialize. England is also an island where no place is more than 90 miles to the water, which helped with the exportation of goods. England was also a major global power, allowing them to develop relationships with outside associations interested in industrialization.

    • I agree that the industrial revolution began in England because of the easy accessible materials and of how England was able to easily transport goods because they were surrounded by water.

  23. The Industrial had begun in England because of the textile production that increased the population and led to the invention of the spinning jenny. They were more exposed to the iron industry as well and were more accepting of those who were part of the enlightenment. Then this led to the invention of the steam engine and then towards factories.

    • I agree. The population increases was so drastic but better for them. They created a lot of inventions and workers were now happy because of their pay.

  24. The industrial revolution began in England due to a few key factors. One, being that since no major land mass was within 90 miles of it allowed for easy transportation. Early on the the Revolution most engines were steam powered and since there was a lot of accessibility to water it gave power to the machines. Not only this, but many minerals were native to the English land.

    • I agree with your stance, the industrial revolution did bring many advancements which, corresponded to the economic and social growth of the nation.

    • I agree with you that geography had a lot to do with why the industrial revolution was able to occur in England. The ability to transport people and goods was essential.

  25. I like how you mentioned the importance of the Spinning Jenny Rebecca in that it boosted the the spindle efficiency. This of course was not the only important invention but it was definitely an important one.

  26. The reason England was the only country participating in the Industrial Revolution is merely because they had involved themselves in the manufacturing of textiles. Textiles began to get more popular and the product demand rose. With the demand being higher the need for workers rose as well. England could afford this because they had a prospering bank system and also an efficient amount of coal to sell. With the these huge incomes of money they could continue to pay workers in their factories and this ultimately encouraged more people to work. With this amount of work it had lead to many inventions that made this work easier on the workers. These are all the unique attributes that kept England afloat.

    • I also said in my reply how Britain was heavily invested in the textile industry. I agree with how you said the demand for textiles got much larger due to more people needing it, and how the money this produces could encourage more people to work.

    • I agree with you, the demand for textiles was a key factor for the revolution and with trading of such item it helped further the revolution and their money to produce more textiles and pay workers.

  27. The reason for England being the only one to participate because they were the only ones involved with into manufacturing textiles. They were popular due to the high demand of them. With so many people wanting textiles the workers were improving. England was able to afford this because they started the bank system and had a lot of coal to sell. With all this money the workers were getting more income. All this work lead to many inventions.

  28. The industrial revolution started in England because it all started with the textile industry. As population grew in England, more people needed and were willing to buy textile goods. The industry showed how many people could make their own clothes at home. But starting in the in the late 18th century, they shifted textile production to a new factory system.

  29. The industrial revolution started in Britain because, England was well involved with other contacts. This allowed a range of disperse in trade. It also was in the center the system of manufacturing allowed the system of trade to progress faster and the economy to grow.

  30. The revolution was able to start in England instead of anywhere else in the world for a variety of reasons. First of all, England had no large land mass within 90 miles of it, allowing for easier transportation. Britain also had control over a lot of coal, fuel, and native minerals. Another huge role was that of the textile industry. During the revolution, the textile industry was the first to set it off, and with the growing populations of Britain, more people needed textile goods and thus sparking the industrial revolution.

    • I agree with your statement. I also think that the industrial revolution was able to start in England because of England’s large land mass as well as their supply that they had control of which you said was coal, fuel, and etc…

    • I like how you included how Britain has a lot of coal, fuel, and native minerals because that was the main source for having the factories

  31. The industrial revolution was able to begin in England because at the time England was not struggling with money or them having to worry about the aftermath of a war. England had plenty of supply like land, coal, and iron as well as them being wealthy at the time which is why it was extremely easy for the industrial revolution to start in England.

    • I agree with you that the Industrial Revolution was able to start in Britain because they did not have to dealt with the devastating aftermath of a war or revolution. The Industrial Revolution could not have started in France because at the time their main focus was to rebuild their society and their government, whereas Britain had the time and money to recreate their country and start the Industrial Revolution.

    • I agree with how you stated that Britain was not struggling with money or postwar effects. England did have money resources and i agree with how you connect that to why the industrial revolution started in England.

  32. The Industrial Revolution was able to start in England and not anywhere else because it was the place where most revolutions had occurred before. Take the Scientific Revolution and the Enlightenment era. Now granted, these two revolutions were different in what they were trying to change, yet there approach was the exact same. They were trying to change the authority and the traditions set beforehand. So the Industrial Revolution was no different than these, except that this time the focus was economically and even a little political. Therefore, when this change occurred, it was not shut down as it would likely be in other parts because during this time frame, change was acceptable, normal, and viewed as an agent of progress.
    Some of the more direct factors of the cause of this change were population pressures and surges, technology development, foreign relations, government support, and the Enclosure Movement. Everything started with ecological pressures and foreign relations. Products of cotton from the Americas that were traded to Great Britain caused a high consumer demand for manufactured products of the textile industry, which was the main spur of this revolution. This lead to the search for new sources of power to power machines that could produce these products in large numbers. Lucky for Great Britain, their terrain was surrounded with nearby coal despots, making it easy for them to pull new resources. Another factor of this economic development was the ability to invent new technology and the government support of these findings and implementation of them. Even though capitalism is based around private marketing, that does not mean that the government does not play a role; instead, the government just lifted regulations that would otherwise impose on the economic sovereignty of private merchants. Well, Great Britain was able to invent technologies before other countries were able to and government investments (combined with private investments) allowed easy implementation of these products to spread up the manufacturing process. None of this though would not be possible without the government’s involvement in the Enclosure Movement. By freeing up land, farmers were able to produce more, which created a food surplus that lead to a population increase that would ultimately provide a large work force, ready and available to work the new machines. All of this was made possible by the government reallocating the land and not shutting down the change that they were witnessing.
    Perhaps the easiest way to understand how Great Britain was able to experience an Industrial Revolution before anyone else was able to is by comparing it to other lands. For this, I will use Africa. Now, Africa was not able to reap the benefits of the Industrial revolution because they lacked the natural resources, diplomatic relations, strong government support, private merchants, and technological advantages – all things that Great Britain had. It was these things that Africa lacked that Great Britain had in such abundant supply that allowed them to surpass the world by going through an Industrial Revolution.

  33. The Industrial Revolution was able to start in Great Britain and nowhere else in the world due to an increase in agricultural practices from new crops such as the potato, which lead to more food for the people, and in turn, a growing population. An increasing population lead to more people that were able to do more jobs. Along with the new agricultural practice came a plentiful supply of money, which they used to invest in new machines and factories. Previously, Britain had already manufactured ports and outlet for their products to ship out and they already had plentiful natural resources such as iron. With these factors, the Industrial Revolution started in Great Britain because they were more adapt to larger amounts of trade and had enough resources, unlike other places.

    • I agree with you that England’s money led them to invest in machines and factories. With this benefit of money England was able to launch a textile production that was one of the first products of the Industrial Revolution. They were able to adapt to larger amounts of trade.

    • I like how you pointed out the importance of capital in the Industrial Revolution. From both private merchants and the government, the new factory system was able to have a strong foundation because of the investments. We can tell that this gave Great Britain an advantage because of two things. One, no other region used money to support the technology and manufacturing methods like Great Britain, meaning that England was ahead of the other world powers. Also, by witnessing how British capital not only developed their own industrial economy but also that of Canada, America, and Brazil, we can see the power that Britain held while no one else did.

  34. The Industrial Revolution was able to start in England because of there wealth and resources. This would include coal, iron, and water. They had enough money to invest in new machines and factories. They had a big production in textile trade and they had profited from the Atlantic slave trade. In England there were an expansion of farmland and improved transportation that led to new crops which increased the food supply.

    • I agree with your reasoning on why the industrial revolution began in England, and you included an important factor of the big production in textile trade.

  35. One of the main reasons for the revolution to start in England was the enclosure movement. This fufilled the need for laborers that an industrial revolution requires. Without this the population of Britain would have been to spread out and there would not have been enough people who did not already have a job to fill the needed positions. Another main reason that the revolution started in Britian was their modern banking system. They were the first to have this system and therefore were able to disperse money more easily to their people for creating new businesses. This fulfilled the second requirement of an inudustrial revolution being the availibilty of money. Finally, Britian was the origin of many modern technoloies that kick started the whole process. This filled the final requirement being inventions to make work easier. In most cases the new inventions made the work load on a single worker much less which allowed them to produce more than they could previously. Britian was the first to have most of these advancements and therefore the first to increase their productivity and efficiency.

    • these are all valid points that you make Liam I was just reading about that in the book. I especially found the modern banking interesting , to know even back in that time period wasn’t much different .

  36. The industrial revolution first made its appearance in England because of many factors. One of the key factors was England’s geography. It was lucky enough to have had a great supply of coal and other natural resources that would be needed to start a revolution of such. Having England surrounded by water was a plus since they used water for power for some time as well. Soon the steam engine was made and that was a big plus for England and its further advancement for the revolution. Textiles was the ‘thing’ for the revolution and manufacturing them was in demand so that as well helped out. Overall England had many contributors that kickstarted the industrial revolution there first.

    • I like how you included the geographic factor; and not just the coal despots, but also the nearby water banks. This was key because not only did they utilize it for cheap, efficient transportation, but also as a power source. And this was key, as new power sources were vital to the transfer of European society to agricultural production to factories and manufacturing.

    • Your mention of England’s geography is insightful and improves your response. I understand why England had the industrial revolution better with your answer. Thank you for your contribution to the discussion.

    • I like how you included the geographic factor, as it is often overlooked. Without the correct geography England would not have been able to carry through the industrial revolution.

  37. Historians describe a confluence,a coming together,of many factors and they do not agree on which are most important.
