On one of my homework assignments, it asks the best form of transportation in the 1800's in the North. Could you help me with that?
Of course! Now in the South, water transport was important. However, it was a bit different in the North,..
In the early 1800's, better roads were built, but people still preferred water travel. The problem with water travel was that it was slow and hard to row upstream.
A bit later, the invention of the steamboat was created. The boat helped travel much faster, and it was easier to travel upstream. Canals were built, improved ships were made, and trading was much easier and faster.
With the invention of trains, the economy boosted, with a faster way to travel than ever. The best business in the North was for rails.
Thank you so much for all of this information! I'll definitely get an A on the homework!
