The Later Years Industrial Revolution

During the later years of the Industrial Revolution, industry had been changed largely. Large scale farming and small scale factories/manufacturing plants shifted toward small scale farming and large scale factories/manufacturing plants (a complete reversal). At this time large numbers men and women were moving from rural spacious towns to busy metropolitan cities/areas. These areas were usually major cities because they were major hubs for trade in America and were seen as an avenue to give the average American a shot at working their way to wealth and status (the American Dream).
