Option 1: Uniting the Nation: Economic Growth3text messaging system, which is still on occasion, used today. Morse’s prototype telegraph was completed in 1835, though a working model was not established until 1844 for a Washington-Baltimore line. Lastly, improvements to agricultural productions starting to take way between 1789-1860. Because of the increases in technological advancements that I have previously mentioned, there was an increase in people who wanted to become farm laborers. Durable iron plows were developed in 1819, replacing wooden plows and allowing farm laborers to have less back pain tilling the soil. (Shi, 2016). In 1837 an inventor by the name of John Deere made a device called the “steel plow” that came with sharp edges that allowed laborers to cut through prairie grass easily. In conjunction with the invention of the steel plow, mechanical seeders were createdin the 1840’s, making it so people didn’t have to plant by hand.ConclusionEvery invention mentioned helped shape America and stimulate its economic growth into what itis today. The telegraph allowed people in America to communicate with everyone else in thenation from afar, which was a great improvement in communication technology at the time.Taking steam and applying it to locomotives helped improve transportation for people byallowing them to travel great distances faster, and easier than putting up with harsh weatherconditions by traveling in wagons. Finally, the agricultural boom helped America exponentiallyand was increased by the invention of steel tools used in creating the framework for ablossoming society allowing for endless crops and products. This is a time in age where Americastarted to grow and flourish and did so with each passing decade.
