Boom towns / Mining
Yeah it sure has. Boom towns have been BLOWING UP everywhere now.
Ranching in the 1800's was all about cattle because everyone wanted beef. Homesteading was big back in the 1800's because there was free land. This picture represents ranching back in the 1800's. (Kind of)
Hey Mr. Jenkins how are you today: your room is done
The railroad's impact on people was great because now people could travel to far place faster. The first railroad was built on July 2, 1831 and since then a lot of them have been going up. The railroad has been been helping a lot of people in the 1800's.
Look at all of the sights darling. I want to try everything, like meet an indian.
Yeah! I want to try everything too! I want to get in gun fight. I've always wanted to do that.
Boom towns in the 1800's were really popular. Boom towns grew faster than a rummer in a middle school. This picture represents two miners talking about the new boom towns BLOWING up.
Give me all the money you have. NOW!!!
OH OH, NOT AGAIN!!!!
Harvey houses were sort of like hotels but less convenient than your average hotel. Harvey houses were run by women because the owner thought men were too lazy.
The west brought everyone from all over to come and see it. All of the trails, sights, and mountains; everyone from all over wanted to see those things. This picture represents a couple visting the west and they want to try everything.
The wild west was all sorts of things like violence, risk of life, fear, and death. The wild west was a very crazy time because nobody really obeyed the laws and everyone would resolve to violence. In this picture a robber is threatening a woman because, well he's robbing the place.
