The European Revolutions started in France and spread throughout Europe and even some parts of Latin America. A number of factors were involved, mainly to do with social and political unrest and discontentment. Even though the revolutions lasted less than a year, some results were the abolition of serfdom in Hungary and Austria as well as the end of absolute monarchy in Denmark.

The Pony Express and The First Telegraph Lines /map_center/the-pony-express-and-the-first-telegraph-lines/ /map_center/the-pony-express-and-the-first-telegraph-lines/#comments Fri, 22 Nov 2013 18:26:02 +0000 KQ Team /map_center/?p=577 MapCenter-PonyExpress-2med

The Pony Express was a mail delivery system between Missouri and California. It lasted for 18 months (April 1860 to October 1861) and reduced the time for messages to get from the Atlantic to the Pacific by ten days. In 1860, the U.S. Post Office was given permission to build and maintain a telegraph line to California. Once it was constructed in 1861, the need for the Pony Express was gone.

Westward Expansion/Mexican War /map_center/westward-expansionmexican-war/ /map_center/westward-expansionmexican-war/#comments Fri, 22 Nov 2013 18:20:13 +0000 KQ Team /map_center/?p=573 MapCenter-WesternExpansion-2med

As the United States expanded westward, they came into conflict with Mexico that resulted in the Mexican – American War. This war lasted a year and a half, as American forces occupied California and New Mexico and made advances into Mexican territory. The war ended with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on February 2, 1848. The United States considered it a victory and Mexico claimed the Rio Grande as its new national border.

Goldrush in California /map_center/goldrush-in-california/ /map_center/goldrush-in-california/#comments Fri, 22 Nov 2013 18:16:29 +0000 KQ Team /map_center/?p=570 MapCenter-GoldrushCA-2sm

When James W. Marshall discovered gold in California on January 24th, 1848, the California Goldrush began. While most of the people that traveled to California in search of gold were from the United States, many were also from Europe, Australia, Latin America, and Asia. Travels were hard and searching for gold was a risky enterprise, but the Goldrush caused a massive population increase; the city of San Francisco grew from a settlement of 200 to a city of 36,000 in 1852.

Before British colonization in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous people groups that spoke over 250 different languages and dialects. Throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, the population grew and six main colonies were formed. In 1901, those six colonies federated and created what we know today as the Commonwealth of Australia. Today, Australia is the sixth largest country in the world with the twelfth largest economy.

From about 1760 to around 1830, England underwent various significant changes in common industries resulting in what is now known as the Industrial Revolution. The use of machinery and technology improved the efficiencies of processes used in textile manufacturing, metallurgy, glass making, agriculture, and mining. Although this produced products and lower prices, there was a large rise in child labor and poor living conditions for the lower class workers.
