jan 25, 1760 - The Industrial Revolution
This era sparked a change in manufacturing processes for the better. Rather than simply doing things manually by hand, Americans were now beginning to use machines to get their work done.

Technology has also increased greatly, so that thousands of products can be manufactured at a time.
