During the course of this project, you have the opportunity to interact with primary sources. Each portion of the project is a step in writing a primary source essay, which is an essay that evaluates primary sources. You will be provided with all of the resources needed to successfully answer the project prompt.

Here is the prompt for this project:

Project Objectives:

Explain the political, economic, and social causes for the American Civil War through the evaluation of primary and secondary sources by focusing on the authors main points, purpose, and perspective; examining different points of view; and assessing the credibility and validity of the pieces that analyze the different forms of government in human history.
Analyze the impact of the American Civil War on civilian populations through formulating questions and address these questions by using historical research and study to evaluate historical events and their impact.

In the last part of the project, you analyzed the first primary source. Now, you will analyze the second primary source for this project. Remember to consider how this primary source connects to your project prompt, which is provided below.

Fisher, Richard Swainson. Dinsmores complete map of the railroads & canals in the United States & Canada carefully compiled from authentic sources by Richard S. Fisher, editor of the American Rail Road & Steam Navigation Guide. 1856. Map. Library of Congress. Web.

Desrption of map: This map of the eastern half of the United States and part of Canada shows drainage, state boundaries, and proposed, projected, and operating railroads. Dark lines show the railroad lines, thickest close to hubs in and near cities such as New York, Chicago, and Frankfort, KY. The railroad lines become smaller and less noticeable in the southern and western sections of the United States. Dotted lines indicate the trails, which begin to emerge in the west as railroad lines end.

What is noticeable about the number of railroads, canals, and wagon trails on the map?
What impact do you think this had on the social and economic aspects of the North, the West, and the South?
