The Union Pacific started in the East and the Central Pacific in the West. Through heat and cold, mountains and desert, the workers worked hard. A six-mile day was amazing. On April 28, 1869, in response to a bet, the Central Pacific Railroad accomplished the impossible by laying 10 miles in a day.Dr. Marden Pond is an emmy-winning composer, arranger, conductor, and educator.
