The Pacific Railroad Act of 1862 created a charter between the Central Pacific and Union Pacific Railroad Companies and created the task to build a railroad that would link the United States from east to west. It took seven years and the labor of thousands of workers (mainly immigrants from China and Ireland) struggling against difficult weather and hostile Native Americans to finally complete the railroad where east met west on May 10, 1869 at Promontory, Utah. The Transcontinental Railroad was created!
Included in this set are images of a map of the American West and the route of the railroad; tools including spikes and a hammer; the "golden" spike which symbolically was used to link the railroads; three images of locomotive trains; a Native American and teepees; railroad workers; a Chinese railroad worker; and a badge or symbol noting the newly found Union and Central Pacific Railroad.
The set will download as a zip file which is easy peasy to open! You'll then see your individual images and will be good to go!
