The Industrial Revolution by Mind Map: The Industrial Revolution

1. Political

1.1. Trade Union

1.1.1. The punishment for trade union was imprisonment Regardless of this law, some joined trade unions anyway, along with creating strikes and riots. The reason that the unemployed rioted was because they wanted to have a “revenge” on the ones that were working because they felt that their jobs were taken by them. The employed fought to raise their wages and improve their working conditions. Both the employed and unemployed rioted by destroying machinery. In the 1800's, the lives of this class started to improve. It eventually became no longer illegal to form trade unions.

2. Social

2.1. Children

2.1.1. Children were not treated well, overworked, and underpaid for a long time before anyone tried to change things for them. Wages and Hours: Children as young as six years old during the industrial revolution worked hard hours for little or no pay.

4.1.3. In Britain, Thomas Newcomen had the same problem as Denis Papin, Thomas did find a way to rotate the engine but it was too big and bulky to go on the ship.

4.1.4. The first ship that was powered by steam was the Pyroscaphe which was built by the Marquis de Jouffroy d'Abbans in 1783. It ran on the River Soane but it proved to be useless . The Marquis never developed the idea any further.

4.2. Steam trains

4.2.1. From Englishman Thomas Newcomen's atmospheric engine, of 1712, through major developments by Scottish inventor and mechanical engineer James Watt, the steam engine began to be used in many industrial settings, not just in mining, where the first engines had been used to pump water from deep workings.
