        In this interactive map produced for Teachers' Domain, explore several ways in which the United States experienced substantial growth between the years 1860–1890. Population centers, railroad networks, and improved agricultural lands are pictured in decade increments against base maps, reflecting natural barriers to growth and the presence of Native tribal populations.
