Henry Ford was born on July 30, 1863. He grew up on a family farm. When Henry was young, he showed an interest in mechanical things and a dislike for farm work. He used his free time doing experiments then after that not long did these experiments pay off. Henry Ford started an auotmaking company. Ford is one of the largest automaker companies in the world. Henry was a strong wise man that never gave up no matter what. He became an engineer in the year 1891. He did a lot of experimenting. As years went by Henry invented the Ford Motor Company. A few years later he noticed that he needed a technique to make his car making process go a little faster. So he developed the moving assembly line technique, which sped the process up. The company began making more cars a day. Henry made sure that everyone was satisfied with the new change, so he than made employers wages go up to $5 per day. Fords first model was the " Model T", which was invented in October of 1908. In 1918 half of all the cars in the U.S. were Model T cars.
Ford Motor Company became popular in the 1920s. Ford hired people with disabilities. In the 1920s Ford Motor Company has more African American employees than any other automotive company. This is the year that many families owned a car. Back then owning a car was something popular, we still look at it like that now days but not as much. These cars influenced legions of people to buy them. The Ford Motor Companies idea made mankind joyful because they can travel much more, much faster, and on time. Ford is still standing strong till this day. Every year there is a new model being made. I believe that Henry Ford did a great successful job and that he will always be in our memories. Henry passed on April 7,1947.
