We Have a Railroad!

A railroad was built going from Central Pacific (west) to Union Pacific (east) to help make our lives easier!

  • It helps us transport goods
  • Makes easier trade
  • Makes transporting cattle easier
We created this railroad to bind California to the union and help us move west. The railroad is officially the greatest of the technologies in the 19th century!

Industrial Revolution Makes America Better!

  • More buildings were built! We have more apartments and homes for homeless people to live in and other building such as churches to make America more modernized!
  • More jobs! More places need people to work in order to make the products. Since this has opened up more job opportunities there will be more money people can make!
