How much did the transcontinental railroad hurt the environment?



  1. 0 Votes

    The transcontinental railroad disturbed the natural environment in the areas it passed through. It killed much of the buffalo population as well as other animals and land in the region. It had a great effect on the Plains Indians who very much worked in synergy with the plants and animals in the land. Some may feel that the toll the transcontinental railroad took on the environment was tragic to the Plains Indians and the ecology of the land.
