This year in Modern World History I learned numerous amounts of concepts that will benefit me throughout my life. Some of the major ideas that I am going to remember for a very long time is the Industrial Revolution and the amazing machines that came with it. The Industrial Revolution as a whole was thrilling to hear about and how it really started a new era. The machines that were manufactured during the Industrial Revolution are still used today and if we had not had this industrial boom, we would not be like how we are today. I still am amazed by the way they put on a Great Exhibition in order to show off the outstanding pieces of machinery. People from all over the world came to see the Great Exhibition, which means the Industrial Revoultion affected not only France, but the entire world. Furthermore, I was really surprised about how much France impacted the United States when it came to technology.
