Course Title:Railroads and American Politics
Course
Description:
The railroads transformed the economy and politics of the United States in the 19th century. The railroads were the first big businesses, and their sheer size led inevitably to conflict with governments at all levels and later to conflict with the large industries that arose due to the availability of railroad transportation. These conflicts still affect modern politics.
