Video synopsis from the History Channel website:
The Transcontinental Railroad doesn't just change the lives of Americans, it alters the entire ecology of the continent. It's the railroad that creates a new American icon--the cowboy--who drives cattle thousands of miles to meet the railheads and bring food to the East. In less than a quarter of a century, the heartland is transformed--not by the gun, but by railroad, fence and plough.

I have found the various History Channel video series to be very helpful when introducing a new unit and an easy way to provide my students with visual references.
