In this online exhibition from the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, students will explore the impact that the development of coast-to-coast railroads had on life in America. Railroads made it possible for towns and cities to flourish away from the coasts and waterways that had been America's main transportation networks. This network of steel rails created new social, political, and economic ties, among people spread across thousands of miles including the national distribution of food and manufactured goods.
