Question:
Did other countries benefit from the Industrial Revolution?
Answer:
Britain's financial success encouraged other countries to turn to industry. France, Germany, Holland, Belgium and the United States joined the Industrial Revolution. The United States soon overtook Britain as a global industrial power, to become the world leader. This period of growth is called the Second Industrial Revolution. In the United States, land and other natural resources were available in plenty. By 1851, the United States had the most advanced mechanical inventions to show at the industrial fair at Crystal Palace in London. Germany had huge deposits of iron and coal needed by industry.
