Staten Island did not play a major role in the American Revolution and Civil War. The area was only used as an entrance to Manhattan and Brooklyn where the troops held their forts. Then in 1898 when Staten Island made the decision to join New York City, the county eliminated their separate towns, yet was still known as Richmond County. Staten Island also went through a very large industrialization movement where the Verrazano Bridge was built. The Verrazano Bridge played an enormous role in the success of Brooklyn because Staten Island is the midpoint of Brooklyn and New Jersey.
Japan attacks Pearl Harbor "Yesterday, December 7th, 1941, a day that will live in infamy" This famous speech by Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared to Congress requesting war on Japan. Pearl Harbor, though the casualties were abundant, was the most pivotal point in World War II, and without it the United States of America would have never entered into World War II. In 1936, a German by the name of Adolf Hitler rose to power, who believed that the Germans were supposed to take over the world. Hitler then created a military group called the Nazis, who entrusted Hitler's strategic plan to "cleanse" the world.
A cloud of dust was visible from the rubble of the collapsed buildings. The only light in the city was the fire burning in the Marina district. Sirens blared from every direction. The shock was responsible for 63 deaths, 3,757 injuries and left 3,000-12,000 people homeless.
The Battle of New Orleans The Battle of New Orleans was a significant time in history. It was supposed to end the war but it did nothing even close to that. The battle just made things worse if you really think about it. The battle was a lot worse than you think. 2,000 men were killed and 58 wounded or missing.
The total length of the bridge is 2.5 kilometres, at the pf construction time it was the longest in Australia but it now sits as the 3rd longest and second highest. The Collapse Two years into construction on October 15, 1970, a 112 meter span collapsed into the river below. Thirty-five construction workers were killed, many of whom were on break sitting below the bridge.
My ability to be an inquirer helped my group gain the advantage through my research of the advantages of different bridge
The bridge builders research pointed them in the direction of their initial design, which was an arch bridge a top a truss bridge and four anchors at the edge of the table. Erikson Lars’s Pi Symphony website greatly contributed to JAN’s want of a bridge with anchors since his studies showed that separate anchors can help distribute about 100 pounds evenly among the four anchors. For the builders idea to include a truss JAN also viewed Erikson Lars’s Pi Symphony since he suggested how a truss between the arc and the bottom will support more weight. Bridges & Tunnels of Allegheny County & Pittsburgh website, pghbridges (2008), also contributed to the builder's decision to use a truss, especially Parker "Camelback" Pratt Truss, since it listed the
Navy Pier This is an escape from the suburbs. There is something about the routine of everyday life that becomes painfully mundane. It’s always nice to get away from your home, but sometimes it is too hard to go on a serious trip. There is, in fact, a better, just as fantastic solution: Navy Pier in Chicago.
Construction began on 23 November 1938. With one fatality, the construction was completed in June 1940. In the late stages of construction, the bridge began to exhibit wavelike motion in windy conditions, resulting in the workers giving it the nickname “Galloping Gertie”. The toll bridge opened on 1 July, with great success. Traffic compared to the earlier ferry system increased by 145%, with cars even lining up to cross the bridge, and the “galloping” bridge also became a popular tourist
An introduction to highway building: Although there are many methods to constructing a road, all are based on the principle that geographical objects are removed and replaced with harder and more wear-resistant materials. The pre-existing rock and earth is removed by digging or explosions. Tunnels, embankments and bridge are then added when necessary. The material that the road is being constructed from is then laid by various pieces of equipment, which will be looked at in greater detail in this assignment. The construction management of roads has become increasingly more difficult as larger structures are constantly being required in increasingly short amounts of time.
