If you were alive during this time, how do you think your social and economic conditions were? (Accounting for your gender and race)
Well, most white males had just gotten back from war and were put into the work force almost immediately. I think I would of done well economically because of the jobs available.
I would be living a good life with a wife and two kids
Would probably not be great.
How long does it take to drive across the nation now?
Probably about a week
Depends. Nadar, probably about 5 hrs or so
Non-stop driving it takes 48 hours. If you take breaks, it would take a week.
Why do you think that the US Government did not put more money into highways and other modes of transport before this time period?
Technology became more advanced, so the need for major highways increased dramatically than before.
The amount of money it took to pave all of the roads must have been great at the time.
I agree with Vanna; technology was not as advanced in the time periods before, so they primarily relied on the railroad for modes of transport.
It's pretty funny how the production of cars and new roads made it easier to get around and now the roads aren't working.
I agree because not all of the roads are paved.
What makes the Erie Canal so great?
It connected the Erie Lakes to the Eastern Seaboard which provided an easier transportation route than by going by land.
It was the first canal to connect the east together with nearly 363 miles starting from Albany, going all the way to the Hudson River, Buffalo, and eventually Lake Erie.
How different would it be if the canal wasn't built?
Why did people drive cars if it took longer to get around? if the roads were so bad before why did they not fix them earlier
People were still getting used to the fact of having cars and roads. It took awhile before they realized they needed more and better roads.
was the Erie Canal mentioned in our chapter or did i just forget about it
Why did Eisenhower want to change America and build a highway? What event wanted him to do it?
Eisenhower drove across America with the Army after World War 1
Mr. Schneider was born in Westermoreland County Virginia in 1732. He sadly died December 14, 1799 of laryngitis after leading his "greencoat" vegans to a revolution against the meat eaters and was a key author of the Declaration of Veganpendence
Mr. Schneider is a hero, we should have had a chapter devoted to learning more about him.
You think this is a game?
I worry about this class.
Would you work to build an interstate highway? Or would your prefer a white collar job?
I would prefer a white collar job simply because it would be easier to do and I would get paid more but the blue collar job would be a good way to earn money.
I would prefer a white collar job so I get paid more
How many cars are there now?
Who funded the highway?
the federal government
What was mainly used before cars became really popular?
How many cars were manufactured in 1946?
How did Americans afford cars?
They made money by working a job.
They put it all on credit, or made loans, or maybe that's the same thing
The majority bought cars with credit.
When did other countries start competing with the U.S. in the automobile industry?
Anarchy is the real definition of freedom <3
Right on! Enlightenment is found through flames
Do you think if we still made that many cars today the economy would be better?
They'd definitely be cheaper.
That's like what happened in Cars :(
Cars is based on a true story Nico
