Jay Greene: A Golden Spike, A Bond of Iron: the Building of the Transcontinental Railroad

The dream of linking the Atlantic & Pacific coasts took more than 25 years to realize. Imagination, political will freed from sectional differences, muscle and a generous helping of graft brought the two oceans together in an indissoluble bond and fostered American unity following the Civil War.
