RAILROADS TRANSFORM THE WEST, 1860–1893
Map on spring roller with backboard
Two maps (one showing the nation in 1869, and one in 1893) show cattle ranges, cattle trails, railheads, the main transcontinental railroad route, other long-haul routes, and secondary routes. One inset at the bottom has a chart showing the increase in railroad track decade by decade from 1860 to 1890, and the other has a chart showing the increase in Western population decade by decade from 1860 to 1890, and pie charts showing the percentage of farmed to unfarmed land in 1860 versus 1890.
