Modern: Industrialization and Global Integration

The 18th and 19th centuries saw so many political revolutions around the world that it's difficult to consider the importance and influence of the revolutions that affected each country differently: the agricultural and industrial revolutions. A complete history unit focuses on the years 1750 - 1900 and all the upheaval throughout, including the French Revolution, the American Revolution, the Haitian Revolution, and the rate of economic and political progress around the globe.
