Industrial Revolution

While the south was producing agricultural products, the north was busy putting the newly invented steam engine to work in the factories. But even before that, they learned how to harness the power of water. You better hope your factory was the first one on the river or else…Or else what? Learn about the Lowell girls and life in the mill towns. What is white lung and why are all those children working? Don’t’ they have to go to school? Who is Lewis Hine and why don’t the factory owners like him? Come along with Nee Nee and Tito on a tour of the Industrial Revolution. Want to go down in to coal mine with them? And why is there a canary in there? You’ll have to watch our DVD to find out!
