Overview[edit] The first electronics appeared in the 19th century, with the introduction of the electric relay in 1835, the telegraph and its Morse code protocol in 1837, the first telephone call in 1876,[1] and the first functional light bulb in 1878.[2] The 19th century was an era of rapidly accelerating scientific discovery and invention, with significant developments in the fields of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, electricity, and metallurgy that laid the groundwork for the technological advances of the 20th century.[3] The Industrial Revolution began in Great Britain and spread to continental Europe, North America and Japan.[4] The Victorian era was notorious for the employment of young children in factories and mines, as well as strict social norms regarding modesty and gender roles.[5] Japan embarked on a program of rapid modernization following the Meiji Restoration, before defeating China, under the Qing Dynasty, in the First Sino-Japanese War. Advances in medicine and the understanding of human anatomy and disease prevention took place in the 19th century, and were partly responsible for rapidly accelerating population growth in the western world. Europe's population doubled during the 19th century, from approximately 200 million to more than 400 million.[6] The introduction of railroads provided the first major advancement in land transportation for centuries, changing the way people lived and obtained goods, and fuelling major urbanization movements in countries across the globe. Numerous cities worldwide surpassed populations of a million or more during this century. London became the world's largest city and capital of the British Empire. Its population increased from 1 million in 1800 to 6.7 million a century later. The last remaining undiscovered landmasses of Earth, including vast expanses of interior Africa and Asia, were explored during this century, and with the exception of the extreme zones of the Arctic and Antarctic, accurate and detailed maps of the globe were available by the 1890s. Liberalism became the pre-eminent reform movement in Europe.[7] Arab slave traders and their captives along the Ruvuma river (in today's Tanzania and Mozambique), 19th century Slavery was greatly reduced around the world. Following a successful slave revolt in Haiti, Britain and France stepped up the battle against the Barbary pirates and succeeded in stopping their enslavement of Europeans. The UK's Slavery Abolition Act charged the British Royal Navy with ending the global slave trade.[8] The first colonial empire in the century to abolish slavery was the British, who did so in 1834. America's 13th Amendment following their Civil War abolished slavery there in 1865, and in Brazil slavery was abolished in 1888 (see Abolitionism). Similarly, serfdom was abolished in Russia. The 19th century was remarkable in the widespread formation of new settlement foundations which were particularly prevalent across North America and Australia, with a significant proportion of the two continents' largest cities being founded at some point in the century. Chicago in the United States and Melbourne in Australia were non-existent in the earliest decades but grew to become the 2nd largest cities in the United States and British Empire respectively by the end of the century. In the 19th century approximately 70 million people left Europe, with most migrating to the United States.[9] The 19th century also saw the rapid creation, development and codification of many sports, particularly in Britain and the United States. Association football, rugby union, baseball and many other sports were developed during the 19th century, while the British Empire facilitated the rapid spread of sports such as cricket to many different parts of the world. Also, ladywear was a very sensitive topic during this time, where women showing their ankles was viewed to be scandalous. The boundaries set by the Congress of Vienna, 1815. It also marks the fall of the Ottoman rule of the Balkans which led to the creation of Serbia, Bulgaria, Montenegro and Romania as a result of the second Russo-Turkish War, which in itself followed the great Crimean War.

Wars[edit] Napoleonic Wars[edit] Main article: Napoleonic Wars See also: Timeline of the Napoleonic era The Napoleonic Wars were a series of major conflicts from 1803-1815 pitting the French Empire and its allies, led by Napoleon I, against a fluctuating array of European powers formed into various coalitions, financed and usually led by the United Kingdom. The wars stemmed from the unresolved disputes associated with the French Revolution and its resultant conflict. The wars are often categorised into five conflicts, each termed after the coalition that fought Napoleon; the Third Coalition (1805), the Fourth (1806–07), Fifth (1809), Sixth (1813), and the Seventh and final (1815). In 1805, Napoleon decisively defeats an Austrian-Russian army at the Battle of Austerlitz. In 1812, the French invasion of Russia is a turning point in the Napoleonic Wars. In 1815, Napoleon abdicates and is exiled to Elba. Later that year, he escaped exile and began the Hundred Days before finally being defeated at the Battle of Waterloo and exiled to St Helena. Latin American independence[edit] Main articles: Latin American wars of independence and Spanish American wars of independence Most countries in Central America and South America obtained independence from colonial overlords during the 19th century. In Mexico, the Mexican War of Independence was a decade-long conflict that ended in Mexican independence in 1821, and in South America, most Spanish-speaking countries obtained independence in that same time frame. Due to the Napoleonic Wars, the royal family of Portugal relocated to Brazil from 1808-1821, leading to Brazil having a separate monarch from Portugal. In 1830, the post-colonial nation of Greater Colombia dissolved and the nations of Colombia (including modern-day Panama), Ecuador, and Venezuela took its place. Abolition and the American Civil War[edit] Main article: American Civil War The abolitionism movement achieved success in the 19th century. The Atlantic slave trade was abolished in 1808, and by the end of the century, almost every government had banned slavery. The American Civil War took place from 1861-1865. Eleven southern states seceded from the United States, largely over concerns related to slavery. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Lincoln issued a preliminary [10] on September 22, 1862 warning that in all states still in rebellion (Confederacy) on January 1, 1863, he would declare their slaves "then, thenceforward, and forever free."[11] The Thirteenth Amendment to the Constitution,[12] ratified in 1865, officially abolished slavery in the entire country. Five days after Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox Courthouse, Virginia, Lincoln was assassinated by actor and Confederate sympathiser John Wilkes Booth. Decline of the Ottoman Empire[edit] In 1830, Greece became the first country to break away from the Ottoman Empire after the Greek War of Independence. In 1831, the Great Bosnian uprising against Ottoman rule occurred. In 1817, the Principality of Serbia became suzerain from the Ottoman Empire, and in 1867, it passed a Constitution which defined its independence from the Ottoman Empire. In 1876, Bulgarians instigate the April Uprising against Ottoman rule. Following the Russo-Turkish War, the Treaty of Berlin recognized the formal independence of the Principality of Serbia, Montenegro and Romania. Bulgaria becomes autonomous. Taiping Rebellion[edit] 1850–1864: Taiping Rebellion is the bloodiest conflict of the century, leading to the deaths of 20 million people. Meiji Restoration[edit] Main article: Meiji Restoration During the Edo period, Japan largely pursued an isolationist foreign policy. In 1853, United States Navy Commodore Matthew C. Perry threatened the Japanese capital Edo with gunships, demanding that they agree to open trade. This led to the opening of trade relations between Japan and foreign countries. By 1872, the Japanese government under Emperor Meiji had eliminated the daimyo system and established a strong central government. Further reforms included the abolishment of the samurai class and rapid industrialization. Colonization[edit] Main articles: Western imperialism in Asia and Scramble for Africa In 1862, French gained its first foothold in Southeast Asia, and in 1863 France annexes Cambodia. The Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 signaled the start of the European "scramble for Africa". In 1885, King Leopold II of Belgium establishes the Congo Free State as a personal fiefdom.

Scott Joplin Sonata form matured during the Classical era to become the primary form of instrumental compositions throughout the 19th century. Much of the music from the 19th century was referred to as being in the Romantic style. Many great composers lived through this era such as Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Liszt, Frédéric Chopin, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky and Richard Wagner. The list includes: Mily Balakirev Ludwig van Beethoven Hector Berlioz Georges Bizet Alexander Borodin Johannes Brahms Anton Bruckner Frédéric Chopin Claude Debussy Antonín Dvořák Mikhail Glinka Edvard Grieg Scott Joplin Alexandre Levy Franz Liszt Gustav Mahler Felix Mendelssohn Modest Mussorgsky Jacques Offenbach Niccolò Paganini Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov Gioachino Rossini Anton Rubinstein Camille Saint-Saëns Antonio Salieri Franz Schubert Robert Schumann Alexander Scriabin Arthur Sullivan Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Giuseppe Verdi Richard Wagner Literature[edit] Main articles: Romantic poetry and 19th century in literature Jane Austen Edgar Allan Poe Charles Dickens Arthur Rimbaud c. 1872 Fyodor Dostoyevsky, 1879 Mark Twain, 1894 Leo Tolstoy, 1897 Ralph Waldo Emerson Émile Zola, c. 1900 Anton Chekhov On the literary front the new century opens with romanticism, a movement that spread throughout Europe in reaction to 18th-century rationalism, and it develops more or less along the lines of the Industrial Revolution, with a design to react against the dramatic changes wrought on nature by the steam engine and the railway. William Wordsworth and Samuel Taylor Coleridge are considered the initiators of the new school in England, while in the continent the German Sturm und Drang spreads its influence as far as Italy and Spain. French arts had been hampered by the Napoleonic Wars but subsequently developed rapidly. Modernism began. The Goncourts and Émile Zola in France and Giovanni Verga in Italy produce some of the finest naturalist novels. Italian naturalist novels are especially important in that they give a social map of the new unified Italy to a people that until then had been scarcely aware of its ethnic and cultural diversity. On 21 February 1848, Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels published the Communist Manifesto. There was a huge literary output during the 19th century. Some of the most famous writers included the Russians Alexander Pushkin, Nikolai Gogol, Leo Tolstoy, Anton Chekhov and Fyodor Dostoyevsky; the English Charles Dickens, John Keats, Alfred, Lord Tennyson and Jane Austen; the Scottish Sir Walter Scott; the Irish Oscar Wilde; the Americans Edgar Allan Poe, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Mark Twain; and the French Victor Hugo, Honoré de Balzac, Jules Verne, Alexandre Dumas and Charles Baudelaire. Some other important writers of note included: Leopoldo Alas Louisa May Alcott Hans Christian Andersen Machado de Assis Jane Austen Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda Gustavo Adolfo Bécquer Elizabeth Barrett Browning Anne Brontë Charlotte Brontë Emily Brontë Georg Büchner Ivan Bunin Lord Byron Lewis Carroll Rosalía de Castro François-René de Chateaubriand Anton Chekhov Kate Chopin Samuel Taylor Coleridge James Fenimore Cooper Stephen Crane Eduard Douwes Dekker Emily Dickinson Charles Dickens Arthur Conan Doyle Alexandre Dumas, père (1802–1870) Paul Dunbar José Maria Eça de Queirós José Echegaray George Eliot Ralph Waldo Emerson Gustave Flaubert Margaret Fuller Elizabeth Gaskell Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Nikolai Gogol Manuel González Prada Juana Manuela Gorriti Brothers Grimm Henry Rider Haggard Ida Gräfin Hahn-Hahn (1805–1880) Thomas Hardy Francis Bret Harte Nathaniel Hawthorne Friedrich Hölderlin Heinrich Heine Victor Hugo Henrik Ibsen Washington Irving Henry James John Keats Rudyard Kipling Caroline Kirkland Jules Laforgue Giacomo Leopardi Mikhail Lermontov Stéphane Mallarmé Alessandro Manzoni José Martí Clorinda Matto de Turner Herman Melville Friedrich Nietzsche José María de Pereda Benito Pérez Galdós Marcel Proust Aleksandr Pushkin Fritz Reuter (1810–1874) Arthur Rimbaud John Ruskin George Sand (Amandine-Aurore-Lucile Dupin) Mary Shelley Percy Shelley Stendhal (Marie-Henri Beyle) Robert Louis Stevenson Bram Stoker Harriet Beecher Stowe Alfred, Lord Tennyson Henry David Thoreau Leo Tolstoy Ivan Turgenev Mark Twain Juan Valera y Alcalá-Galiano Paul Verlaine Jules Verne Lew Wallace H. G. Wells Walt Whitman Oscar Wilde William Wordsworth Émile Zola José Zorrilla Science[edit] Carl Friedrich Gauss Charles Darwin Dmitri Mendeleev Louis Pasteur, 1878 Marie Curie, c. 1898 Nikola Tesla The 19th century saw the birth of science as a profession; the term scientist was coined in 1833 by William Whewell,[20] which soon replaced the older term of (natural) philosopher. Among the most influential ideas of the 19th century were those of Charles Darwin (alongside the independent researches of Alfred Russel Wallace), who in 1859 published the book The Origin of Species, which introduced the idea of evolution by natural selection. Another important landmark in medicine and biology were the successful efforts to prove the germ theory of disease. Following this, Louis Pasteur made the first vaccine against rabies, and also made many discoveries in the field of chemistry, including the asymmetry of crystals. In chemistry, Dmitri Mendeleev, following the atomic theory of John Dalton, created the first periodic table of elements. In physics, the experiments, theories and discoveries of Michael Faraday, Andre-Marie Ampere, James Clerk Maxwell, and their contemporaries led to the creation of electromagnetism as a new branch of science. Thermodynamics led to an understanding of heat and the notion of energy was defined. Other highlights include the discoveries unveiling the nature of atomic structure and matter, simultaneously with chemistry – and of new kinds of radiation. In astronomy, the planet Neptune was discovered. In mathematics, the notion of complex numbers finally matured and led to a subsequent analytical theory; they also began the use of hypercomplex numbers. Karl Weierstrass and others carried out the arithmetization of analysis for functions of real and complex variables. It also saw rise to new progress in geometry beyond those classical theories of Euclid, after a period of nearly two thousand years. The mathematical science of logic likewise had revolutionary breakthroughs after a similarly long period of stagnation. But the most important step in science at this time were the ideas formulated by the creators of electrical science. Their work changed the face of physics and made possible for new technology to come about: Thomas Alva Edison gave the world a practical everyday lightbulb. Nikola Tesla pioneered the induction motor, high frequency transmission of electricity, and remote control. Other new inventions were electrical telegraphy and the telephone. The list of important 19th-century scientists includes: Amedeo Avogadro, physicist Johann Jakob Balmer, mathematician, physicist Henri Becquerel, physicist Alexander Graham Bell, inventor Ludwig Boltzmann, physicist János Bolyai, mathematician Louis Braille, inventor of braille Robert Bunsen, chemist Marie Curie, physicist, chemist Pierre Curie, physicist Gottlieb Daimler, engineer, industrial designer and industrialist Charles Darwin, biologist Christian Doppler, physicist, mathematician Thomas Edison, inventor Michael Faraday, scientist Léon Foucault, physicist Gottlob Frege, mathematician, logician and philosopher Sigmund Freud, the father of psychoanalysis Carl Friedrich Gauss, mathematician, physicist, astronomer Francis Galton, English Victorian polymath Josiah Willard Gibbs, physicist Ernst Haeckel, biologist William Rowan Hamilton, physicist and mathematician Oliver Heaviside, electrical engineer, physical mathematician Heinrich Hertz, physicist Alexander von Humboldt, naturalist, explorer Robert Koch, physician, bacteriologist Justus von Liebig, chemist Nikolai Lobachevsky, mathematician James Clerk Maxwell, physicist Wilhelm Maybach, car-engine and automobile designer and industrialist Ilya Mechnikov, biologist Gregor Mendel, biologist Dmitri Mendeleev, chemist Samuel Morey, inventor Alfred Nobel, chemist, engineer, inventor Louis Pasteur, microbiologist and chemist Ivan Pavlov, physiologist Santiago Ramón y Cajal, biologist Franz Reuleaux mechanical engineer Bernhard Riemann, mathematician William Emerson Ritter, biologist Vladimir Shukhov, inventor Nikola Tesla, inventor William Thomson, Lord Kelvin, physicist Thomas Young, English polymath. Philosophy and religion[edit] Karl Marx Friedrich Nietzsche The 19th century was host to a variety of religious and philosophical thinkers, including: Mirza Ghulam Ahmad founded the Ahmadiyya Islamic movement in India. Bahá'u'lláh founded the Bahá'í Faith in Persia Mikhail Bakunin, anarchist William Booth, social reformer, founder of the Salvation Army Auguste Comte, philosopher Mary Baker Eddy, religious leader, founder of Christian Science Friedrich Engels, political philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, philosopher Allan Kardec, systematizer of the Spiritist Doctrine Søren Kierkegaard, philosopher Peter Kropotkin, anarchist Karl Marx, political philosopher Pierre Joseph Proudhon, Mutualist anarchist John Stuart Mill, philosopher Krste Petkov Misirkov, philosopher and historian William Morris, social reformer Friedrich Nietzsche, philosopher Nikolai (Nicholas) of Japan, religious leader, introduced Eastern Orthodoxy into Japan Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, Hindu mystic Claude Henri de Rouvroy, Comte de Saint-Simon, founder of French socialism Arthur Schopenhauer, philosopher Joseph Smith, Jr. and Brigham Young, founders of Mormonism Vladimir Solovyov, philosopher Herbert Spencer, "The Great philosopher" Charles Spurgeon, Baptist preacher and writer Leo Tolstoy, anarchist Ayya Vaikundar, initiator of the belief system of Ayyavazhi Ellen White religious author and co-founder of the Seventh-day Adventist Church St. Therese of Lisieux, French discalced Carmelite nun Politics and the Military[edit] The last Shogun Tokugawa Yoshinobu, c. 1867 Sojourner Truth, 1870 The allies: Sultan of the Ottoman Empire; Abdulmecid I, Queen of United Kingdom, Victoria and President of France, Napoleon III.
