Without them, the Plymouth Colony and other early settlements would not have succeeded and turned into the colony of Massachusetts, which then developed great industry and became a leader for the country. Later on, indentured servitude was the reason immigrants were able to build such incredible communities in Massachusetts, all of which contribute something unique and wonderful back to the state that houses them. Indentured servants sacrificed countless years of their lives to the labor required to build Massachusetts, and the growth and success of our state is to show for

In 1453, Constantinople fell into the hands of the Ottoman Empire (Doc 4), thus allowing the Ottoman Empire to control the Bosporus Strait. The Bosporus Strait connects the Black Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, permitting the Ottomans to tax merchants going through the strait as a shortcut to Africa and Europe (OI). The advantageous geographic location of Constantinople enabled Constantinople to not only become the cultural center for Islamic beliefs but also allowed Constantinople to flourish and gain much wealth, positively impacting the Ottoman Empire’s economy.

Overall, during the transportation revolution, construction of turnpikes, roads, canals, and railroads led to the market economy expansion, an increased population in America and alternations of the physical landscape of America. As American factories and farms started to produce more goods businessmen and legislators began to create a faster and cheaper way to get goods distributed to consumers. Around 1820, Americans began to build canals and steamboats, railroad, and extend roads linking the Atlantic Coast with new states in the Trans Appalachian west. Canals and Steamboats shrunk the distance of carrying goods from one place to another and could haul the most cargo for transportation. A well-known waterway called the Erie Canal connected the Great Lakes region to the Atlantic Ocean and cost 7 million dollars.

In addition, eastern coastal African towns like Mozambique, Zimbabawe, and Mogadishu were located along the sea network that connected India, Arabia and Africa, where exotic goods like animal skins, gold, and ivory were traded (doc 10b). Consequently, coastal towns became wealthy from their control of certain parts of the network allowed them to tax merchants for sailing there and from the various goods entering the growing market. Additionally, the Delphi Sultanate controlled a trade network linking together India, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and China, where different goods like spices entered the economy (OI).
