The National Road, today called U.S. Route 40, was the first highway built entirely with federal funds. The road was authorized by Congress in 1806 during the Jefferson Administration. Construction began in Cumberland, Maryland in 1811. The route closely paralleled the military road opened by George Washington and General Braddock in 1754-55. During the heyday of the National Road, traffic was heavy throughout the day and into the early evening. Almost every kind of vehicle could be seen on the road. The two most common vehicles were the stagecoach and the Conestoga wagon. Stagecoach travel was designed with speed in mind. Stages would average 60 to 70 miles in one day."
Stage coach stops were usually 20 miles apart or most of a day s ride.
5 miles, 60 miles, or 200 miles.
8 knots on the good days.
yes it was very expensive back then because everybody wanted to get to where the gold was first
People could travel to the cities easier. Trade grew in these cities. Jobs became available.
Yes there was a special type of horse's that were called moneycarriers.They were the only ones that were taught in this way all other stagecoach horse's were just regular horse's.They were used to transport gold or anything of value. They were taught a code word that was the only way to get them to stop. There was no way to get them to stop other then shooting them.They would keep going no matter of who was in front of them.
It was a lot cheaper labor. They could get the work done fast and for a lot less money than using Americans.
