lNithout realizing it, England instilled in the colonists
the individual purpose and ingenuity that netessity
breeds. Witli trade goods cut to a minimum, determined
young leaders of the time set out to find ways of survive
ing without support from the lvlother Country.
Agricultural methods and machines and labor saving
devices were designed by our forefathers. As frontiers
opened, Yankee genius had to conquer natural barriers
in the wild new country, so suspension bridges were
invented and methods of transportation were perfected
for the purpose of opening the untamed areas, Later,
they sought to section off the land with the revolution-
ary and controversial invention f barbed wire,
Coopers 1-horsepower Tom Thumb train in 1830
and later, automobiles like the first Model T, and the
4-horsepower airplane, became American modes of
travel from city to city and coast to coast.
Americans knew that the fertile lands of this nation
would produce unequalled harvests if machines were
designed to take over for man. They knew also that
trade routes were difficult to travel and manufacturing
would have to be done close to home. The cotton gin,
textile looms, drill presses and a reaper which could cut
six times as much grain as a hand scythe were some of
the tools invented.
Protection for themselves and for their young country
prodded inventors like Eli Wfhitney to perfect firearms
and others to work on plans for the first submarine.
Young inventors like Alexander Graham Bell and
Thomas Edison tcalled the nations most valuable citie
zenl visualized machines that would light the country
and open up communication with those in the far cor-
ners of the nation. The telephone, telegraph, phonos
graph and the first light bulb were discovered in the late
1800's and early twentieth century. This American way
of doing for oneself inspired many to become inventors
in their own right. Some sought to save labor and mass-
produce for profit while others envisioned not only
riches, but excitement and adventure as they discovered
ways to defy nature.
Throughout the past ZOO years the American mind has
been unleashed to take whatever paths necessary to fule
fill the needs, In the last half-century, the pace of dis-
covery has been overwhelming and inventions for the
taming of the universe lie in the grasp of America
while the habit of "finding a wayi' is ingrained in its
people. The seeds of industrial America were sown by
these inventors resulting in todays mechanized soc iety.
