Test 1, Essay 1 Throughout American history, individuals of many different cultural backgrounds have made an impact on both society, and life as we know it today. In the case of post civil war America, this is certainly no exception. Because of the scientific innovations of Henry Ford, Thomas Edison, and Andrew Carnegie, the modern American economy has become more industrialized and effective. Henry Ford was an especially notable pioneer in the industrialization of America. Of his many contributions, the most notable is, of course, the assembly line process. Ford came up with this idea regarding specialization of labor. If each individual works on one section specifically, not only will they grow in expertise of this sector of work, but it will take less time and manpower to mass produce the product. This, in turn, made the product (in this case automobiles) more affordable. This affordability was reflected in society by the appearance of more and more cars on the road.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
