Blockade & Increased Factories
This storyboard does not have a description.
Ha! Told ya..We don't need those Britain fools to make our own goods!
Oh my! You are totally right!
The British Navy cut off America trade so that they could prevent American ships from trading, which had a bad effect for the U.S shipping.
In order to get the goods they needed, Americans were forced to supply their own goods, so there was an increase in factories. Instead of doing their work by hand, they began to use the help of machinery.
The British blockade created a shortage of cotton cloth in the United States, which led to the U.S. industry becoming more independent and the North was introduced to the cotton industry.
The British blockade eventually led us to the Industrial Revolution
There began to be technological innovations in transportations. More people moved to cities where there was more available jobs in the Northern half of the U.S.
The population began to grow, natural resources, people began inventing new things leading to more work and more people from other countries to work with.
Britain had blockaded America and prevented trade, but little did they know, that they had mistakenly made America stronger.
