Description
The population explosion in the American West would not have been possible without the creation of the massive transcontinental railroad. People called the engineer, Theodore Judah, crazy for thinking that such a project was even possible. However, the skill of railroad engineers, the tireless labor of thousands of immigrants, and the political will of the U.S. government linked together the West and the East and secured the prosperity of the nation for centuries to come.
