  • When trying to find oil, Anthony F. Lucas, a drilling engineer, accidently went to far down sending gallons of oil into the air.

  • Oh no! I went to deep! Help!
  • The railroads gave lower rates for shipping out the cotton for famers. Railroads tripled the cotton sells for famers. The companies also shipped out food for famers. As the rates rose the value of the agriculture goods in Texas went up.
