The goal of this paper is to identify some of the discoveries in mathematics during the period from 1820 to 1875 that have profoundly changed the nature of mathematics. To provide a context for this, the author compares some results of mathematics before the year 1820 with those present after 1875. And to humanize this, the author discusses the details of the life and times of two mathematicians, one who was active before 1820 and one who was active after 1875.
