    Early American Transportation

    As the new American Colonies grew in population there was a constant need for the creation of goods and services needed by the new colonies. Tradesmen and home craftsmen alike found their services in great demand. As towns and states grew there began the need for common social services such as policemen, firemen, mail carriers, lamp lighters and town criers. In addition the butcher, baker, blacksmith, and candle maker were always in high demand.

    In the post colonial period of early America the need to expand westward helped fuel an ever growing need for new supplies for the increasing numbers of settlers. These new settlers needed the same basic goods to clear the land, plant crops, and live in the new frontier.
