Description:
The Journey to Promontory DVD from Kalmbach chronicles the first transcontinental railroad constructed by the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific. The first transcontinental railroad was a wonder when it was built in 1869. Stretching 1,776 miles between Omaha, Neb., and Sacramento, Calif., it linked the nation. Join noted railroad historian Rich Luckin 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. The immense task was marked on May 10, 1869 with a Golden Spike driven at journey's end and railroad meeting point: a lonely place in the Utah desert called Promontory, and celebrations around the country following a simple telegraph message : Done!
