Excerpt from History of the Union Pacific Railway, Vol. 2 The first railway to the Pacific claimed the attention of the country on two distinct bases - as an element in our political history, and as a commercial enterprise. In the early sixties the leading argument in favor of building it was the necessity of strengthening in their allegiance to the Union the states on the Pacific coast. Since the completion of the road in 1869 the commercial importance has been the obvious one. It was, moreover, the commercial features of the scheme, and only in a minor way the political ones, that inspired the early agitation for a road. In this agitation, which stretches far back of the Civil War, it is interesting to trace the evolution of the plan for connecting the two oceans by rail, and to see how the road was considered at first desirable, then important, and at last necessary. The spirit of unrest which led to the discovery of new lands and new routes to old ones during the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries was slow to die out. The commercial spirit of Europe which inspired the quest for a new sea route to India did not subside with the finding of an intervening continent and the subsequent failure to find a Northwest Passage. If there was no waterway, a land route was demanded. Explorers had not been slow to trace the great natural waterway leading into the heart of the continent furnished by the Great Lakes, but advances west of Lake Superior were inconsiderable. Thus far the French had led; here they stopped. The completion of the task was reserved for Anglo-Saxon genius.

The First Transcontinental Railroad, originally called the Pacific Railroad, was a railroad built in the United States between 1863 and 1869 that connected the western part of America with its eastern part. Built by the Central Pacific Railroad of California and the Union Pacific Railroad, it connected the Eastern terminus of Council Bluffs, Iowa/Omaha, Nebraska with the railroad lines of the Pacific Ocean at Oakland, California. In time, it would link in with the existing railway network present on the Eastern Coast of America, thus connecting the Atlantic and Pacific coast of the United States for the first time by rail. Because of this, the line received a second nickname, “the Overland Route.” The railroad was a government operation, authorized by Congress during the height of the Civil War. Congress passed the Pacific Railroad Acts in 1862 and again in 1864. To pay for it, the US government issued 30 year bonds, as well as granting government land to contractors. The construction of the line was a major achievement by both the Union Pacific (constructing westward from Iowa) and the Central Pacific (constructing eastward from California). The line was officially opened on May 10, 1869, with the Last Spike driven through the railway at Promontory Summit, Utah. James K. Wheaton looks at the history in this eBook.

Excerpt from History of the Union Pacific Railway, Vol. 2 Mr. Whitney was a New York merchant in the China trade who had gained a considerable knowledge of the geography of the West and also of its needs and its possibilities. By incessant lecturing and writing, and by personal contact with leading men, he made his influence very widely felt, and impressed upon a vast number of people his views of the need and the feasibility of a Pacific railway. He has the honor also of having formu lated the first definite plan for a road. Although this never received the sanction of Congress it is important as indicating the first stage in the evolution of the Pacific Railway Act.

Excerpt from The Union Pacific Railway: A Study in Railway Politics, History, and Economics The work of the student of history has heretofore been confined almost wholly to the political, religious and liter ary development of peoples; their industrial development has been subjected to inexcusable neglect. Yet the pillars of the dominance of the anglo-saxon race are its superior industrial attributes. What a people accomplishes industrially and how it accomplishes it. Go far to determine how it will be governed, what it will think and feel, and what it will write. The freedom of the individual that was the product of the eighteenth century has been more emphatically man ifested in the field of industry than in any other field of human activity. The growth of constitutional government in England is easily traced to the want of harmony be tween the Old political status and the newly developed indus trial status of English society. The increasing tendency to submit international disputes to arbitration is attributable not so much to a more enlightened repugnance to warfare as to the mere human fear of destruction of wealth and interfer ence with industries occasioned by it. The Annapolis Con vention had its origin in the desire of the American states TO consider how far a uniform system in their commer Cial relations might be necessary to their common inter ests. The slavery question was largely an industrial ques tion, and its solution was industrial, not political or moral.
