How did railroads impact America after the Civil War? Throughout history, transportation has helped move people and materials around in civilizations. Transportation has enabled the growth of cities and has further increased the development of complex societies. A method of transportation widely used is the system of railroads; before cars and airplanes became popular, trains dominated passenger and freight services due to their simplicity and business versatility. Railroads became more widespread in the United States after economic damages caused by the Civil War.
At some point, both settlements were involved with trading with Native Americans. An area where Plymouth were more successful was how they prevented casualties by befriending Native Americans.

The Clock’s Impact The invention of the clock helped to bring a massive change not only in America but other countries around the world. However, it was not until the Industrial Revolution that they began to receive popularity due to its efficiency in being able to tell when the steam train would arrive. In class, we talked about the influence trains had on time and how it impacted people to direct their schedule according to the change in time rather than looking up to the sun. Trains were a major improvement in reducing the time needed to reach a certain point or destination, and helped to bring a new type of transportation that was not only fast but efficient as well. The clock helped people to adapt to the new change and ease them in the process of getting comfortable with work from that point on.
Globalisation first came into the Western vernacular due to its relationship with global economics. Coming out of industrialisation in the late 19th century, mass produced items became the norm. Reduced prices and greater accessibility improved the well-being of the lower classes in society, with Ford’s assembly lines being a worldwide symbol of the economic boom of the 1920s. For most of the 20th century, however, mass production was confined to the national scale. With the development and increased accessibility of commercial air travel and shipping containers in the mid to late 20th century, mass production became a global affair, with major companies outsourcing product development to countries where workers’ wages and costs of materials were lower.
Once England started paying little attention to these navigation laws, America started to trade with countries other than England. This boosted the economy in America because now it was exporting and importing directly to countries instead of going through England. This demonstrated to some colonists that they didn’t really need to rely on England, and that they could sustain themselves on their own through their independent
Mass production became a big theme during this time, which allowed prices to lower on several goods. Trade with other countries, also helped these businesses.

Americans from New York to San Francisco need to travel by boat, the shortest time to six months. It did not only impact economic development but also it made the government more difficult to control the country. The development of this transcontinental route provided a vein that could carry information, people, and goods across the whole mainland. The subsequent railroads that were built only paid tribute to this stately merits and achievements that changed the course of American history. Though the age of exploration and the wagon trains was over, the central railroad embodied the American spirit of the United States, which has made American overcome many difficulties on the way.
Britain bought India's natural resources, such as cotton, cheaply, and would then use their Industrial machines to make exceptional goods, which they sold back to the Indian people at a higher price (Doc 2).This was extremely profitable for the British (Imperialism in India). The modern British industries destroyed the previous cottage industries in India because goods were made faster and better in Europe (Doc 11). This also stopped the growth of new industries which could have lead to more jobs and a wealthier
For example, Charleston, South Carolina had a higher population than Baltimore, Maryland in 1790, but soon afterwards Baltimore experienced a rapid urban growth rate rivaling other major port cities in the United States, while Charleston decreased in its importance. In addition, George Rogers Taylor attributes the Napoleonic Wars as a factor leading to growth of U.S cities. The wars in Europe allowed for American farms and forests to take center stage in trade as American ships have become a hot commodity during that time. Being in such position allowed the Four Great Eastern Seaports (New York, Baltimore, Boston and Philadelphia) to flourish, additionally these 4 cities at the time were about one half of the entire urban population of the United States. Although cities were growing in a steady rate there was a period of decline in decades of 1810 to 1820.
