This chapter analyses the expansion of America’s transatlantic trade in the period directly following the American Civil War. Post Civil War, industrialisation increased rapidly, alongside the expansion of rail networks, allowing for the investment in steamship technology. The chapter tracks the development of business rivalries, governmental acts, and the passenger and freight trade that led America to take a key role in international maritime trade. In particular, the author follows the history of the Philadelphia Railroad Company and the role it played in the process of globalisation.
