The edited question has a pastiche of Marx's actual, and problematic, accounts of long duration history but is reopenable.

comment Do revisionist historiographies come closer to “unbiased truth”?
I've used Ranke's "as it was" as a proxy for the general public's understanding of "unbiased." Part of any answer would need to note the problem with "bias" as a concept in the general public. I maintained the concept "unbiased" since it seemed a strong opinion from the original questioner. If the OP is happy for me to further modify this to a question as a historian would write it, I will.

This needs an edit, but it is rescuable. I'm pretty sure I could rescue it.

comment How did Americans adopt processed and off-site butchered meat for domestic consumption in their food supply?
As opposed to "closer settlement," the resource extraction industries (mining and forestry), including meat relied on commodity food, as opposed to subsistence local production.

@MarkC.Wallace I'm pretty sure the industrialisation of American diet preceded dense urbanisation. The industrial frontier, for example, required industrial food production.

@congusbongus Given that that question was closed as off-topic, where as this question is on-topic, I am not seeing how this is a duplicate.
