They also faced a couple of conflicts. Many travelers began to complain about the expensive toll charges the Native Americans had in order for them to cross their land. Out of 500,000 people to travel along the Oregon Trail fewer than 400 pioneers lost their lives due to attacks. Sadly the attacks became more frequently, but in order to reduce them. They made a treaty.
It was a risk to go through Indian Territory but it is the fastest and best-calculated route to go on. The weather and Indians make it very hard to get there alive and successfully. Re-upping could possibly kill me, cause me to be sick, and miss out on the growth of my family. I have enough money from the first cattle drive that I could live off of it for about a year. Re-upping would be dangerous and I could just find
This helped them transport the goods that found and it also helped to transport the miners there. The big one that happened during the old west is the California Gold Rush. Other places they discovered gold was in Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, and some in Canadian Klondike.1 The railroads brought good things to the old west, but when they were building the tracks for it, they had many difficulties and hard times. 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.
Gold Rush The Gold Rush was a time that change many people’s lives in good and a bad way. In this essay I will explain how the Gold Rush affect the US in a good way, bad away, and interesting facts. The Gold Rush was saw as opportunity to everyone around the world, some came for the gold, some came to sell common needs of the average gold miner. About 300,000 people came to California for the new fortune. Also about 2 billion money worth of gold was extracted during these times.
In 1850, miners were taxed $20 per month, for the privilege to mine gold in California. Among those taxed, were Chinese, Latin Americans, French and Germans. The tax was responsible for the profit damage to gold country merchants and later repealed. In 1852, a new Foreign Miner’s Tax was enforced and would state that non citizens pay three dollars a month to mine in California. The tax revenue from mining would bring California millions of dollars and can be considered a positive impact to its economy ( Competing Visions 121
There were lots of different types of foods Fruits,meats and drinks. The vast need for food was proven very useful because “we don 't want our soldiers starving now do we”. It was a big responsibility for the drivers and sailors delivering valuable foods. If the food and supplies did not make it to the soldiers who were fighting they would not be able to win in battle. There were many times when food was scarce and troops had to do without because the transportation that was arriving got raided, The colonists depended greatly on transpiration to deliver the food.
In the second half of the 19th-century migration to California increased due to railroad-inspired land boom. However, migration to California was not welcoming and tolerant to one specific group of migrants, and this group was the Chinese. As new rails were being built there was a demand for workers to build railways throughout California and eastward to connect the Transcontinental Railroad with Union Pacific (Textbook, 269). Big railroad industries, such as Central Pacific hired Chinese immigrants as part of their workforce. The Chinese worked tirelessly and through tough environmental conditions and earned low wages.
There were times though when even the most highly trained soldiers were not prepared for, which were the times of casualties and loss. Sometimes it would be minor casualties such as getting lost, or maybe a train robbery. Although that might not like a small issue, in reality items from a train can be recovered, and on most occasions when soldiers from any side got lost, they eventually found their way. No soldier though was prepared for very dark events, such as death, fatal injuries, diseases, harsh weather, hunger, sleep depression, even rough terrain. Anyone who was part of any war will tell you how awful it was, whether it was a victory or not.
4. Austin, Nevada Smack in the middle of Nevada along U.S Highway 50, you 'll find the dusty ghost town of Austin. Discovered by accident after a horse kicked over a rock revealing silver, the town quickly grew to host some 10,000 souls in search of a quick fortune. As was often the case, however, there was more hype to be found than riches, and Austin soon met a rapid decline. As evidenced by the three churches that grace the town (all of which still stand), Austin can certainly claim to be one of the more civilized towns of the Wild West.
Traveling was difficult, the roads rough and rugged. But Bob was not going to give in so easily. Even with the wagon wheel broken and many of his supplies gone, Bob’s attitude was inexorable. It was December of 1849, the year of the great gold rush! Instantly all kinds of people started to forge their way to California in great hopes of becoming rich.
A sentence from a text stated, “The Indus, however, is destructive and unpredictable in its floods, and the cities were frequently levelled by the forces of nature.” That indicates that the civilization was unable to predict the precise moment when the river is going to connect, often destroying their town as a result of the flood. With the help of animals that can pull a carriage, rebuilding the whole city would be much more easier. Another challenge the Indus River Civilization might face is having trouble traveling so with the vehicle being pulled along by animals makes the journey much more easier for the
