Advancement is the word that best describes the industrial revolution. Throughout this “period” of time and still now many things have “advanced”. Thomas Edison was a big part of it. He had many inventions and things that helped us grow as a country. Some examples are ( Storage battery, electric fan, electric motor ). All of these things have helped us advance. Water wheels were a huge part that soon lead to steam motors. Sewing and making clothes became a lot easier. Yes there were many downfalls but the good definitely outweighed the bad. Just in the past 40 years we have advanced so much with our own inventions and other inventions have been improved and we are continually progressing and advancing.
