Question description


The Effects of Europe's Industrial Revolution

When an individual lives during what will later be considered a "revolution," he or she often only experiences a few of the notable changes for which the revolution will be known. Obviously, it is difficult to see every perspective of change from just one place in a lengthy and complex revolution. In this assignment, however, you will be challenged to experience Europe's Industrial Revolution from the perspective of one individual who will live through it all and who will understand the impact of the revolution as it pertains to his role from the beginning to the end.
