Under Henry Clay's American system, canals, railroads, and public education paramounted past internal improvements. The inventions oriented towards textile and locomotion sparked more invention and more production. Society, itself, conformed to the factory system and consolidated into industrial communities.
In short, the early s presented an unprecedented abundance of fuel for an industrial revolution in the United States. Prompting this rapid development of industry was the three driving powers of society, political development and policies, and economy and technology.
The progression of society from yeomen farmers to industrial workers had developed largely by the 's. Between andimmigration increased from 2, annually to aboutIn ,German and other European refugees were able to abscond with enough money from their homeland to buy small plots of land in the Midwest, such as Cincinnati, St.
Louis, Chicago, and Milwaukee, after the failed German revolution.
Most immigrants were less fortunate, however. Many Irish took flight to America during the failure of the Irish potato crops between and These immigrants had little money and the South had little need for additional workers; they had slaves. They were forced to take manual jobs in the North, mainly in cities like Boston.
This influx held the same pattern in the United States. Many families attempted to supplement their meager small farm incomes by sending women and children to the factories to work.
This large influx in populations of immigrants and domestic workers increased productions and created a increasing trend towards a greater number of factories; From to the number of spindles in operation in the US increased from 2, to 5 million.
Industry achieved a revolutionary point not only through redistribution of domestic and immigrant populations, but also through the South's extensive use of slavery. Slavery in America came to a dramatic low in the late 's, but with the introduction of new technologies, ie.
Although the industrialists were slightly set back by unions and organized union movements, such as the National Trades Union and "Commonwealth vs. Hunt" where Massachusetts Supreme Court established the right of workers to strikethe outcome was clearly in favor of industrial growth.
In the 's, working groups demanded uniform 6 am to 6 pm work shifts, with an amount of two hours for meal breaks, and increased wages; these demands only succeeded in New York. Other employers took court action, forcing the striking workers back to the factories, or hired non-union workers.

Similarly, the political development and processes of the US at that time assisted in the industrial expansion of America's markets and businesses. The United State's government advocated Henry Clay's American system in generate protective tariffs, creating stimulating legal arrangements, reinforcing economic energy, allowing for a stable centralized revenue center, and educating the public.

Jefferson supported and passed into law the widely unpopular Embargo Act, effectively cutting off America from the rest of the world. With little manufactured products being imported, Americans turned to the infant American industry. The War of further stimulated this growing sector of US economy, but after the Treaty of Ghent, the American industry had little protection from the already developed British industry.
In response to this, John C. Calhoun, Adams's Vice-President, secretly wrote the "South Carolina Exposition and Protest" calling for the nullification of this tariff, but it was met with little enthusiasm, and set the state for the "Nullification Crisis of ".Rights of Man by Thomas Paine () English radical Thomas Paine wrote this book in direct response to Edmund Burke’s Reflections on the Revolution in France (), which attacked the cause.
