What role did railroads play in changing southern society

The opportunities brought about by the production of railroads were tremendous. Urban growth was made easy by new abilities of traveling and transporting goods. During the change from an agricultural production based economy to an industrial based economy, new jobs popped up everywhere because of needs for workers to build railroads which intern stimulated the economy even more. Since traveling was became so much easier, people from all over could now share their culture, clothing styles and move to new places and have many more experiences that were never viable before. America as a whole became closer knit and this was the foundation for the distinct America personality we still have and love today.
