EPISODE SUMMARY FROM THE HISTORY CHANNEL:
In 1869, the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of America, more than two thousand miles apart, are linked by continuous metal rails. The Transcontinental Railroad – the world’s first – is one of the most ambitious human enterprises since the Great Wall of China, and much of it is built by Chinese laborers who immigrate to the U.S. in search of work and the promises of prosperity.
The railroad doesn’t just change the lives of Americans, it alters the entire ecology of the continent – and there are enormous casualties that result from this massive and transformative project. The vast Plains, where buffalo and Native Americans roam, become home to farmers who build houses of grass, and cowboys who trail their cattle thousands of miles to the railheads. Steel roads and now steel wire fences parcel up the Plains.
In less than a quarter of a century, the West is won – by the railroad, the fence, and the plow.
