This lesson is intended to give student insight to the lives of those that lived on End of Track towns sometime called Hell on Wheels. This story of Billy Owen gives students an understanding and illustration of the people and structure of Hell on Wheels. After reading students answer response questions and we discuss as large group. Following the reading and response questions I show portions of the AMC show "Hell on Wheels" S1: E6. Great lesson for showing the struggles of the frontier and introducing the "Wild West".
