Similar to the sea routes, the Romans built roads that reached all throughout the empire, helping to easily access key locations and major cities (Doc 3). So that these roads could be as efficient as possible, the Romans used devices called Gromas that lined the streets up with the horizon. This ensured straight roads that provided the quickest form of land transportation (Doc 4A). It would be very impracticle to have poorly constructed roads that needed to be rebuilt often and the Romans knew this. As a result, they added important details to the roads to keep them long lasting.
They were built to get street cars off of crowded streets. Cities were also coming up with new techniques of road and bridge building at the same time. Without the creation and spread of these transportational innovations, the United States of America would have progressed differently. Workers were now able to travel to business centers more efficiently and faster paced as well. Businesses are able to expand even more, because they can now hire people from a larger area.
Although there were many social justice changes in America during the early 1900s, there were also many cultural changes in this time in history. Transportation innovated a lot throughout the early 1900s, cars and streetcars were built to help decrease the traffic in highly populated cities. Frank Sprague designed the first electric streetcar system. Streetcars were an easy way of transportation and were fast, clean, and quiet. The streetcar lines ran from the city center to the outside of the city, creating the suburbs.

One of the most important factors in helping Rome thrive as a city, and gain government power throughout Italy was the way in which they treated the outlying Latium towns. In order for Rome to expand their power, they needed to expand their land. Because the Latin towns had a treaty, made by Spurius Cassius, with the neighboring tribe of Hernicans, these cities would be the perfect places to expand. These treaties were made to strengthen Rome against foreign enemies, and allowed for common cause between the Romans, the Latins, and the Hernicans in repelling the attacks from the three main common enemies: the Volscians(occupied the southern plains of Latium, near the coast), the Aequians(Occupied the slopes of the Apennines, on the northeast), and the Etruscans(occupied the right bank of Tiber) (Morey, n.d., ch.

Stagecoaches and Turnpikes; Traveling Through Connecticut Setting the Scene Before the groundbreaking invention of stage coaches and turnpikes, people had to travel in harsh road conditions in a private carriage or even by horseback, which was very costly and many people did not own these means of transportation. Turnpikes had first appeared in the 1700’s where businesses had privately funded these new roads. Running all across Connecticut, these Turnpikes became beneficial to many as they helped import/export good to far away locations. Private carriages and horseback were used for transport on turnpikes until a man by the name of Levi Pease brought the idea of stage coaches to New England. This unbeatable duo was the start of something extraordinary.

But many fail to regard the Punic Wars as being a prime turning point for the city of Rome. Through being triumphant, Rome acquired numerous developments within the city itself. The city became exposed to a vast number of slaves, and women assumed a wider role in the Roman everyday life.
