During the making of the transcontinental railroad, which was the first railroad ever built, they had many difficulties that it took them around 5 years to finish it. Everything came by sea and there was a civil war going on during the first part of the construction of the railroad. Now building the railroad, they needed a lot of money and the only way they were going to get that money from the government was to build the first 40-mile track in the highest mountain in Sacramento. It required thousands of men to work on this track. This caused many deaths from cold and hunger.

Unfortunately, this was not a voluntary service.

200,000 Germans became prisoners in Falasie pocket. Only around 15,000 French men were killed. This was a turning point in the war because many men were wounded, captured, or killed in a very short amount of time.

After the events of a very long and painful war most of the Roman population had suffered greatly. So as a gift emperor Vespasian started the construction of the Roman colosseum in 70 A.D to 72 A.D.

Well, construction of the canal began in 1881 by France, but there were engineering problems and too many people were dying due to diseases like Yellow Fever and Malaria.

Then they took 10 more years to complete the canal.
The first village built by the English was named “James Fort” in honor of their monarch. Within two weeks the Indians, known as the Powhatan’s, found out from the Secotans (North Carolina Native Americans), where most of the recent settlements got “lost”, so they attacked the village. The attack was a failure because the British drew out the Indians with cannons and muskets. After the British drove the Indians away showing more power they also had disadvantages, most of the settlers were trained soldiers and gentries which means they didn’t have enough farmers and farm land to feed all 150 colonists. By the first half of September more than half of the James Fort city (later Jamestown) colonists died, taking the Powhatan’s to pity.

In the 1760’s, Spain granted the territory west of the Mississippi River to France. This was a success for France because this territory held the powerhouse of trading along the river. New Orleans, the key city, and Louisiana rested in this territory. France began to take the United States permission to use the river for trading. This was a huge drawback for the U.S. because goods would be floated to New Orleans along the river and then shipped overseas.
Although the Erie Canal was proposed in 1807, the construction did not commence until 1817, the canal originally ran 363 miles from Albany, to Buffalo, New York, along the Hudson River, which they have since improved and expanded the canal throughout the years. Without steamships or railroads during this period, the only way to transport goods was by pack animals, which was time consuming, expensive and had unreliable delivery dates, in turn the canal was built to create a new water route from the Atlantic Ocean to the Great Lakes to provide a more efficient and cost effective transportation system of good and products to the western interior of the United States.
