  •      Cattle Kingdom
  • Our horses are too slow, you'll be transported by railroads now!
  • Uh.....Moo?
  •         Oil Boom
  • This has been my home for the past years, at least I'm making money.
  • Railroads and Farming
  • Time to load all this cotton onto the train!
  • After issues with cattle driving, Texans created railroads to get their cattle to different stockyards and markets. People would have to buy these cattle, and depending on how many a person bought would determine how much money a person would make. Railroads also served as a faster process of moving cattle than just cattle driving.
  • Cattle Kingdom
  • Come one little one, you're falling behind.
  • Do  y'all need some water or food?
  • Oil-field workers often lived in tents or shacks. When it rained, the roads, or paths, would transform into mud because they were made of dirt. It wasn’t was a very pleasing place to live in general.
  • Oil Boom
  • Farmers used rail lines to transport items such as cotton, which was very abundant, quicker. This would make them more money when the products were sold in stores. These rail lines also created more space for commercial farming
  • Railroads and Farming
  • Ha! Our railroads are way more reliable that that dumb horse you've got there
  • It's ok, don't listen to him, you're perfect the way you are.
  • Y'all aren't going to escape on my watch
  • In a cattle-drive crew, there are 4 different ‘jobs’. The wrangler takes care of the crews horses, making sure they are all right. The camp cook carries supplies and makes meals. 2 men, called point men, lead everybody through the trail.Lastly, drag men stay behind the herd and keep them moving from behind.
  • This way  everyone!
  • Boom-towns grew from populations of just a thousand, to over twenty-thousand in a little over a year. They moved to the places where oil was of plenty so they could make money.
  • Can you believe how many people are in this town now?
  • I know! Went from 100 to over 2,000!
  • Having to move both people, and supplies aren’t an easy task. Railroads were more reliable, they were faster, and they did cost much. When people moved items there is a chance of either losing the items or losing there ride.
