what are some factors that promoted industrial growth in the US??? And what kind of graphic organizer should I use to show this???
These sites will give you some ideas on post Civil War industrial development
Some of the factors I can think of include the rise in immigration that provided cheap labor, development of electricity, completion of the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869, a huge nation with many natural resources, invention of automobiles and trucks, improvements in the telegraph system, and the telephone.
