Germany becoming united in 1871 made way for large growth in every way. the population grew by 26.7 million. These people moved from the country to work in factories.Germany followed the brithish way of industrialising. Brithish workers and tool were brought to Germany. Railroads were build to connect major factories and their cities. For these reasons and more Germany became a industrial power
There were many technological breakthroughs after the civil war some of which being the railroad, telephone and light bulb. The railroad took steam engines and put them into trains on tracks. As time went on thee tracks stretched longer and longer making it easier to move bigger items around the country. Alexander Graham Bell took the telegraph to the next level. The telephone transferred sounds from one person to another by way of electrical wires. The United States got lucky they had iron coal and oil.
Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels wrote the Manifesto of the communist Party. This is the clearest record of what communism is. In the Manifesto of the communist Party they state that all people should be equal and that there should be no class systems. No one should have more and anyone else. The seperated the people as the haves and have not's. They said that the haves were the the welthy and the have not's were the workers.

After having to repair the Newcomen;s engine he realized that the boiler was bigger and that more steam could be used to make the engine run faster and with more efficiently. This led to his idea of the Separate Condenser in which steam would condense into a different container than would always stay cold and then the other part of the engine, the cylinder would always be hot. Watt partnered with Mathew Boulton so that his invention would be finaniced. Watt's engine was later put into boats and other means of transportation
John Kay was born in 1704 and changed the way textiles were produced forever. The Flying shuttle made it so that weavers didn't have to puss the shuttle with yarn connected to it across the loom but instead the shuttle moved by a leaver that would be let go by only one weaver. This made weaving about twice as fast. This made way for the spinning jenny and the spinning mule.
Jethro Tull was born in 1674 revolutionized the way seed were put into the ground. Before he invented the seed drill seeds were put into the ground by drilling holes by hand and placing a few seeds into the hole. That was a comple and utter waste of seeds. After he invented the seed drill in 1701 there was none of that but instead the drills cylinder rotated, shallow holes were dug, seeds were dropped into the holes and then the holes were covered. There was no more of the hard hand labor and this invention made the seed growing into crops more likely
