Industrial Revolution
1760-1908 AD
Age of ProgressThe Industrial Revolution was a major change from an agricultural based economy and society to one based on manufacturing. People rapidly moved from the farms to the industrial towns and cities and learned new skills and ways of living. Vast wealth accrued for a group of select individual called Robber Barons from manufacturing, transportation and power production. With the development of the Gilded Age, workers rebelled against the salaries and working conditions of the period and formed labor unions to balance the power of the Robber Barons.
