The Steam Engine was one the most powerful forces for change in the 19th century. Without the ability of these Iron Horses to transport people and cargo hundreds or thousands of miles easily, countries like the United States or India might have not formed the bonds that allowed peoples thousands of miles away from watch to consider each other countrymen. Beyond the debt we owe the early Steam Engines for our very self-identity, the Steam Engine had a certain majestic beauty and primal power which still enchants people young and old.
