Wheat Farms, Flour Mills, and Railroads: A Web of Interdependence

This lesson could be used in American history, social studies, and geography courses in units on the rise of big business, mechanized farming, and railroads in the post-Civil War period or on the westward expansion of the United States. It could also be used in courses on economic history.
