Summary
The driving of the golden spike at Promontory Summit, which marked the completion of the country's first transcontinental railroad, was only the beginning of the race for railroad dominance. In the aftermath of this feat, several railroads raced for the prize of a southern transcontinental route. While much has been written about the first railroad, the bulk of the history of railroad history has been largely ignored. Here, Walter Borneman picks up where most other histories leave off
