But these trails for the ranchers were just to the nearest railroads and didn't really have anywhere to store the vast amounts of cattle. Joseph McCoy saw this and decided to build a cow town on the railroad at Abilene in 1867. He built pens for the cows, offices and even a small hotel and advertised the town as a shipping point for cattle. cattle would be driven up from Texas to Abilene and then be transported by railroad to the East. At its peak, between 1867 and 1881 saw 1.5million cattle pass through the town, and everybody including the ranchers made a profit.
The presence of the Nile River had a major influence on the people of Egypt. Egyptian farmers prayed everyday for the success of the yearly flooding of the Nile. This overflow of the Nile produced a repeating cycle which allowed farmers to plant, flood, and harvest their crops just in time for the next cycle to begin. After the floods recede, it leaves a thick bed of mud called silt. In this rich new soil, farmers could plant and harvest enormous quantities of wheat and barley, which also led to surpluses that allowed their villages to grow.
Contributions to the Great West There are many components to the West that helps in the settlement of it. Those components including mining, cattle raising, and farming. Mining was very popular at prior to during this time period. The 49ers of California and the 59ers of Nevada led to even more gold digging in the 1860’s. Nevada became a popular gold digging location after the Comstock Lode had been uncovered and 340 million dollars worth of gold and silver had been found.
Due to the increase in production farmers and ranchers discovered quickly that they need more manual labors. To resolve the problem of needing labors the farmers and ranchers started importing foreigners for manual labor. When Puerto Rico was ceded to the United States of American, the economy for the country changed. Many Puerto Ricans were small farmers and cultivated a variety of corps and sold their products locally. When the Americans took over the country, the small farmers were bought out by the Americans.
The Nile is the longest river in the world, and referred to as an international river, as it spans approximately 5000 miles of the African continent, according to Wikipedia ("Nile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia," n.d). The Nile flows north through the Sudanese desert, ending into a large delta basin in Egypt. It is the primary water source for Egypt. The Nile played a crucial role in the development of civilization in Egypt. Life was abundant along the river.
Railroad building in Britain, France, Germany, Canada, Russia, Japan, and especially in the United States fueled a tremendous expansion in the world’s rail networks from 1850 to 1900. 2. In the non-industrialized world, railroads were also built wherever they would be of value to business or to government. 3. Railroads consumed huge amounts of land and timber for ties and bridges.
Generally, the agriculture production in this period saw a rise from the 74.5 million tonnes of grain harvested in 1913 (while Russia still operated under the Tsarist regime) to 97.1 million in 1940  . This then had the effect of increasing industrial growth as there was more food to support the workers with. A lot of this grain was used for export purposes; this portrayed communist Russia as a rich and
News of gold spread very quickly. An old mountain trader named John Cantrell found a sack full of gold and spread news to Kansas City, Missouri of the event and other traders brought the news to New Mexico, Fort Laramie, and Kansas. Within a short amount of time before winter arrived, Cherry Creek had gained about one hundred new people. The first arrival of gold was on August 26, 1858, which had poor people sweeping in from Kansas City, Lawrence, St. Louis, Omaha and Leavenworth to jump on the chance of changing their
Task A: The growth early in the United States was influenced by a number of geographical factors. Two geographical factors that had contributed to the development and expansion of the United States are the results of once promising farm land from the Dust Bowl and the increasing population from the Gold Rush. The Dust Bowl was initiated from once promising farm land by over aggressive farmers. In 1930, the Southern Plains was the most productive to be as a farmer. After World War I, farmers were paid record prices for wheat.
Most Americans thought building such a railroad was an impossible feat because of the enormous distance to be covered, and especially the incredible amount of money required for the daring project. Soon, Congress authorized its first federal grant, which consisted of public land to help promote and finance railroad development. More grants to the railroads were brought up throughout the decade, but the greatest land grant was the result of the Pacific Railroad act of 1862. The increase in railroad production changed the United States, aiding in making it the industrial nation it is today. As the leading method in the transporting of people and products, railroads were indispensable to American industry.
