transportation revolution

This was when farmers wanted markets in the east and west but could not accomplish this without trasnportation. So this "revolution" came with Robert Fulton's invention of the steamboat, which was now able to go through the ocean without any obstacles. Another one was the contruction of railroads and the later the Pony Express (1860), which was used to carry mail.
