4 What We Already KnowMen like Robert Fulton and Henry Shreve Miller had developed steam ships that opened much of the nation’s interior to trade.

Nationalism is a feeling of pride, loyalty, and protectiveness toward your country.Henry Clay, from Kentucky, was the Speaker of the House of Representatives, and a strong nationalist.Clay’s goal was to make the country stronger and more unified.

13 Nationalism Unites the Country In 1815, President Madison presented a plan developed by Henry Clay to Congress.The goal of the plan, known as the American System, was to make the country economically self-sufficient.
14 Nationalism Unites the Country Clay’s plan included three main actions:a system of protective tariffsa national banka series of improvements to the country’s transportation systems (roads and canals)These are often referred to as internal improvements.
15 Check for Understanding A ask B: What was the American system?The American System was Henry Clay’s plan to make the United States economically self-sufficient.Be sure to re-state the question in your response!
16 Nationalism Unites the Country The protective tariff made European goods more expensive and encouraged Americans to buy cheaper American-made products.
17 Nationalism Unites the Country A national bank would make trade easier by promoting a single currency.In 1816, Congress passed a protective tariff and set up the second Bank of the United States.
18 Nationalism Unites the Country Improving the country’s transportation systems would contribute to a strong economy, because poor roads made transportation slow and costly.
19 B ask A: What were the three parts of Henry Clay’s American System? The three parts of Henry Clay’s American System were protective tariffs, a national bank, and internal improvements.Be sure to re-state the question in your response!

22 Roads and Canals Link Cities Between 1806 and 1841, Congress had funded the construction of the National Road linking Cumberland, Maryland, to Vandalia, Illinois.Water transportation also improved between 1825 and 1850, which is often called the Age of Canals.

24 Roads and Canals Link Cities The first canal major canal project completed was the massive Erie Canal.The Erie Canal created a water route between New York City and Buffalo, New York.Completed in 1825, the canal opened the upper Ohio Valley and the Great Lakes region to settlement and trade.
25 The Erie Canal stimulated nationalism. The canal allowed farm products from the Great Lakes region to flow east and people and factory goods from the East to flow west.
26 Trade stimulated by the canal helped New York City become the nation’s largest city.

30 A New Way to TravelAround the 1830s, the nation began to use steam-powered trains for transportation.In 1830, only about 30 miles of track existed in the United States.By 1850, the number had climbed to 9,000 miles.Improvements in rail travel led to a decline in the use of canals.
31 By 1830, the nation was using steam-powered trains for transportation. Check for UnderstandingB ask A: In addition to canals, what other new form of transportation was in use by 1830?By 1830, the nation was using steam-powered trains for transportation.
