Because it is the first major American city founded after theAmerican Revolutionas well as the first major inland city in the country, Cincinnati is sometimes thought of as the first purely American city.It developed initially without as much European immigration or influence that was taking place at the same time in eastern cities. However, by the end of the 19th century, with the shift from steamboats to railroads, Cincinnati's growth had slowed considerably and the city became surpassed in population by other inland cities,ChicagoandSt. Louis.
