The establishment and usage of the railroad system played a critical role in the westward expansion of the United States, it was crucial in providing a means of communication, but more importantly it was the key in transporting the much-needed resources across the United States and the territories in order to expand. In 1860, the majority of cities within the United States with populations of 500,000 to 100,000 were found in the North-Eastern states, cities such as Boston
Throughout American History, revolutions in transportation have affected the American society politically, socially and economically. Soon after the war of 1812, American nationalism increased which leads to a greater emphasis on national issues, the increase in power and prevalence of the national government and a growing sense of the American Identity. Railways, canals, and Turnpikes began to increase making many people employed. The era of 1830-1860 represents a shift from agrarianism to industrialism.

National affairs were majorly effected, especially expansion. Funding and grants for railroads went from around thirty-one million acres of land in 1863 to one hundred twenty-nine thousand in 1870. On the other hand the funding for harbors and rivers went from thirty-four thousand dollars in 1862 to around eight million in 1880 (Doc 6). After the transcontinental railroad was built the desire for railroad expansion lessened immensely. As the Civil war concluded the nation needed to rebuild itself more people were employed to create harbors to connect the nation with foreign countries, and the north, south and west even more.
To expose the torment women face, Clinton uses anaphora to conjure feelings of sympathy. She deliberately repeats the same phrase in the beginning of each sentence to emphasize the violation of rights women face and make the idea prominent to the audience. She also emphasizes the “duties” that women are sometimes obligated to do within the family when she states that “families rely on mothers and wives for emotional support and care. Families rely on women for labor in the home. And increasingly, everywhere, families rely on women for income needed to raise healthy children and care for other relatives.” She is able to clarify how women are as equally, if not more important than men when it comes to the responsibilities and how their rights should be treated as
