The paper discusses how the economic development of the United States (US) during the early 1800s owes much to the development of the railroad as the predominant method of inland transportation during the 19th century and thereafter. The paper relates that much of the US' economic growth during this period was not simply coincidental to the development and the expansion of the railroad network first in the East and then, every more gradually, to the West, but rather, almost certainly because of it.
