Study the given map of industrial centers of the United States. Then, write a paragraph explaining why Pittsburgh's location helped it to become the steel-making capital of the United States.
The map at the beginning of the 20th Chapter shows us the American industrial centers. Almost all industrial centers were located along the coastline. The Atlantic coast was the center of the textile, automobile, steel, and clothing industries. The products of these industries were loaded into ships and transported across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. On the other hand, Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas were known for their mines. Texas also had an abundance of cattle, so the meatpacking industry developed there.
