North America 1914 CE
Canada and the USA have experienced huge industrial expansion.
What is happening in North America in 1914CE
The recent decades have been years of unprecedented industrial expansion, laying the foundations for the continent’s pre-eminence in the 20th century. Transcontinental systems of transport and communications – the railroad, the telegraph and the telephone – tie the economies of the USA and Canada into an integrated whole. The continued westward movement of peoples focusses on the settling of the US Mid-West and the Canadian prairies. Millions of new immigrants boost the population. New cities arise, and older ones expand out of all recognition.
Mexico does not share in this growing prosperity. It is now experiencing the start of its two-decade long Revolution (1910-29).
