"Although most Americans in 1815 remained farmers living in rural areas,
they had become, especially in the North, one of the most highly
commercialized people in the world. They were busy buying and selling not

everyone, it seemed, trying to realize what Niles' Weekly Register declared
'the almost universal ambition to get forward.' Nowhere in the Western
world was business and working for profit more praised and honored."
