From Lighthouses to Electric Chargers: A Presidential Series on Transportation Innovations

Since its founding, transportation technological innovations have played a key role in U.S. history. Momentous achievements like criss-crossing canals, revolutionary railroads, humongous highways, and ample airports have all made it easier to travel from sea to shining sea.

But what did transportation developments look like in the moment? What were the debates surrounding new transportation technologies and innovations? And could they have led us down a road less traveled?

Join Eno for an exciting new series as we dive into transportation innovations and how they were encouraged (or discouraged) by the presidency.
