The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain and spread to the United States. Samuel Slater was an Englishman who illegally brought textile machine technology to the United States. A key development in the Industrial Revolution was the introduction of interchangeable parts by Eli Whitney. Interchangeable parts revolutionized manufacturing, allowing objects to be mass produced and easily replaced. Robert Fulton, another key figure of the Industrial Revolution, pioneered steamboat technology.
