By 1860, the major Eastern cities were connected, and the country’s developed economic regions were no longer so isolated from each other. The railroad network by 1860 was far more dense in the North than it was in the South. {FIGURE 14.2 Federal Land Grants for Railroads _V_______________________ awvwgva‘mw «Wm/I’m”. w. an. .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
