Notes:

A look at the immense task that was marked on May 10, 1869 with a Golden Spike driven at a lonely place in the Utah desert called Promontory and celebrations around the country following a simple telegraph message. The first transcontinental railroad was a wonder when it was built in 1869. Stretching 1,776 miles between Omaha, Nebraska and Sacramento, California, it linked the nation. Join us for this look at the railroad that Abraham Lincoln launched; the difficult construction project through mountains and across plains that thousands of Chinese and Irish immigrants built.
