1 The Age of Technology : 19th Century American Inventors
David C. King
64 pages, 5.5 x 4, paperback / softcover, History Compass
The spirit of invention pervaded 19th century America. From Fulton's steamboat, to factory assembly lines, to Edison's motion picture machine, Americans marveled at the new technology. Historian and author David C. King highlights many of the masterminds of the century through his own commentary and with excerpts from primary source documents. The book touches on Whitney, Colt, Fulton, Morse, Otis, Deere, McCormick, Swift, Armour, Borden, Bell, Edison, Westinghouse, Eastman, Ford, Pullman, and several women and African Americans of both genders whose contributions were often not acknowledged.

The popular Perspectives on History series contains compelling firsthand accounts from colonists to astronauts and is widely used as supplemental material in the study of history and literature in grades 6- College Level. Use of primary sources through excerpts from journals
