The Erie Canal turned New York City into a very significant epicenter for business, manufacturing, and investments. It also unlocked the western parts of America for settling and moved the Midwest 's agrarian and manufacturing products to domestic and international markets. The Erie Canal directly transformed trade and shipping by shortening a two-week wagon trip from Albany to Buffalo into a five day trip. It also became a channel for new philosophies such as abolitionism, women 's rights, utopianism, and religious movements. It generated the establishment of other canal systems across the eastern United States, and Canada as well.

The Tappan Zee Bridge, an iconic structure, has traversed the Hudson River, connecting its shores for over 50 years. It has been considered "a symbolic span over which Westchester and Rockland Counties [move] virtually overnight, twenty years into the future.” (Governor Thomas F. Dewey). Up until the late 1940s, Rockland was a predominantly agricultural settlement; opposing the more urban and industrial economy of Westchester, which was growing rapidly more dense in its population. Following the conclusion of World War II, land and housing in Westchester became significantly less prevalent. A solution was required to accommodate such great demographic increase.

I will give reasons why I think they aren 't the most effective ruler and why Alexander the great is, in my opinion. Alexander is more effective than Qin and Augustus/Octavian. Alexander the Great is the most effective Leader. According to the people from History, in 15 years of conquest Alexander never lost a battle and he named more than 70 cities after himself and one after his horse. First of all, that shows that Alexander has been in power for 15 or more years and in those years he never lost a battle.
Immigration in the first years of the twentieth century had a profound impact on American society, culture and the political landscape. The effect of this immigration helped to determine the United States global persona for the entire century. As larger groups of Western Europeans immigrated to the United States, in the first twenty years, they brought with them, their culture, traditions, and European (old world) mode of thought. When they became vastly intertwined within the culture of the factory towns and metropolitan cities their influence can be seen and felt, their influence on politics and laws are also observed. As we will analyze, the change to the United States was not dramatic, it happened over time, becoming clearly visible
As our nation’s capital, the history of Washington, D.C. is important from the location, to the layout of the city, and the creation of its monuments and museums, which all give testimony to our great nation. Our national city’s story started on October 19, 1781, when the British army surrendered at Yorktown (Burke 20). At that time, the youthful nation proved its strength.

8- Franklin D. Roosevelt and this New Deal fundamentally transformed America and created a debate that we see played out every day in America 's national politics: big government Democrats vs limited government Republicans. AS a read through this section, I found a plethora of government agencies that were established with the New Deal and just about every aspect of American lives were affected. Everything from labor, segregation, American Indian citizenship to women’s rights. However, to answer the question, “what is the most significant long-term effect of the New Deal ?” it has to be that the government was expanded in ways that had never been seen before and continues to this day to do so.
