They have new Railroads that are all through New Mexico
I didn't know that
Boomtown and Mining
This town happened over night!
All because of mining!
In this picture it is a family moving into an old barn/ farm house that they got from the government. They also got acres of land from the government. The only way for them to live in it is if they grow crops and agree to live there.
Hello! Welcome to the Harvey House, would you like to come in?
Hi! I would like to apply for a job actually!
Here in this picture it is two people on a train talking about the new Rail Roads. The Rail Roads affected every single type of person in a positive way. The Rail Roads made it easy for people to get machinery they need.
This is where people used to have gun fights!
That means multiple people have died here!
In the picture above it is two teenagers talking about how the town they lived in was created over night because of mining. Whenever people would mine a town would be created for people to live while they mined for gold and silver. These towns usually lasted a long time.
Harvey house were hotels with a diner in them. A place where only woman could work. And a place where people could eat and stay the night.
Here is a picture of someone giving tourists a tour of the town/ state. Tourists would learn fortunate and unfortunate things about their surroundings. Cities and States became more populated by this.
Here is the wild wild west. People would gun fight like no one was around. Unfortunately plenty of people would die but no one was locked away. This is because they had no laws.
