Aim: How did the Industrial Revolution create a greater divide between the North and South? Do Now: Read the Ch.7, sect.1 summary and watch Unit 4 video Homework: Read Ch.7, sect.2 answer ques. #s 3 and 4 Date: 10/27/10
What was the Industrial Revolution? Industrial Revolution- social and economic reorganization that took place as machines replaced hand tools and large scale factories developed Eli Whitney introduces the idea of interchangeable parts building muskets Leads to mass production – the production of goods in large quantities Development of the Factory System- use of power driven machinery for production What effect do you think the cotton gin would have on slaves? Model of cotton gin
Slavery & Production: A Direct Relation What is the relationship between slave production and cotton production? The U.S. imported the same amount of slaves from (32 years) that they imported from (157 years) So what was the overall effect of the cotton gin on slavery??? Slavery increased b/c of cotton gin
Where do we put the factories? After the revolution, America relied on international trade for income Jefferson’s Embargo Act of 1807 & the War of 1812 turned American attention towards developing domestic industries. Why do you suppose this occurred?? What location in the U.S. would be the most obvious choice for factory building??? Why was this so???
Two Economic Systems Develop Northern Economy: Relied heavily on factories and manufacturing Small agricultural production Did not require slaves Slavery abolished in northern states by 1804 Southern Economy Invention of Cotton Gin generates agricultural boom in South Increase in size of plantations Increased need for slaves in these areas
Aim: How did the Industrial Revolution create a greater divide between the North and South? (cont.) Do Now: Finish working on problem from yesterday. Write down your solutions. Homework: None Date: 10/28/10
Can We Solve the Problems of Separation in America? Problem: America is going through a period of great uncertainty. The Industrial Revolution has lead to a major economic and social separation between northern and southern states. Objective: Together, with your group develop a plan of action to unify America focusing mainly on economic issues. Task: 1) Create a plan to link the agricultural economy of the south and the industrial economy of the north. How can we unify these two economies to benefit America as a whole? 2) Focus on taxes of imported and exported goods. How can this effect your newly united economic system? 3) How can we ensure that our currency is worth the same in both northern and southern states?
The American System A plan of economic self- sufficiency in America The plan included: 1) developing transportation systems between states (railroads) 2) establishing protective tariffs 3) Resurrecting the national bank National Road from Maryland to Illinois Erie canal- connected the great lakes to the Atlantic ocean
The Erie Canal What do you know about the Erie Canal? Opened in 1825 Only 4 feet deep but 363 miles long Greatly increased trade from NYC to rest of country Made NYC countries largest port
Tariffs and the National Bank Tariffs on imported goods would surge consumption of American products- The Tariff of 1816 Second Bank of the United States- created common currency so states could easily do business with one another Which political party would not like this? Second Bank of the U.S.- Washington D.C.
Aim Revisited: How did the Industrial Revolution create a greater divide between the North and South? Industrial Revolution brings factory system, interchangeable parts and mass production to U.S. North rapidly industrializes while South remains agricultural Cotton gin brings more slaves to U.S. The American System plan attempts to solve US regional differences
Aim: How did nationalism influence America in the early 1800’s? Do Now: What was the “American system” and how could it have increased a feeling of nationalism? Homework: Read Ch.7, sec.3 answer ques. #3 and #4 Date: 11/1/10
The Monroe Doctrine European nations (Spain, Portugal, Russia) wanted to re-establish colonies in the western hemisphere How might this affect the U.S.? What might be some possible repercussions?

Supreme Court Flexes Muscles Gibbons Vs. Ogden Ogden has monopoly on steamboat route that crosses state lines Is Ogden’s monopoly legal? Why? Helped ensure fed. Govt. has the power to regulate everything that crosses state lines How does this translate into modern times? What does the federal govt. control? McCulloch Vs. Maryland Maryland places heavy tax on local branch of the National Bank Is this constitutional? Why or why not? Supreme court decides that states could not overturn laws passed by congress How does this strengthen the power of nationalism in America?
Aim Revisited: How did nationalism influence America in the early 1800’s? Federal government increases its power with Gibbons vs. Ogden and McCulloch vs. Maryland Supreme Court cases Monroe Doctrine warns Europeans to stay off N. American continent and we will stay out of Europe Missouri Compromise debates slavery issue as Missouri admitted as slave state and Maine as free state
