The First U.S. Transcontinental Railroad Was Completed This Day 148 Years Ago — On May 10, 1869.
The fateful joining up of the ‘Central Pacific’ and ‘Union Pacific’ railroads at Promontory Summit, in Utah.
I have read a bit about the building of the ‘Central Pacific’ and it is beyond fascinating. What a story.
148-years ago. A few years after the ending of the Civil War.
Worth spending a few seconds today thinking about this.
Strange that Google has NEVER done a Doodle for this!
