Nothing Like It In the World: The Epic Saga of the Transcontinental Railroad
Dr. Brett Barker
April 24 6:30 p.m. Waupaca Public Library
Dr. Brett Barker, Associate Professor of History, UW-Marathon County, returns to Winchester Academy with his latest research topic. The building of the first transcontinental railroad, linking the Pacific coast with the Midwest, remains one of the greatest examples of engineering skill and human perseverance. In this presentation, Prof. Barker will explore the design and conception of the railroad, its shaky beginnings during the Civil War, the 5-year struggle to complete it, and the human dimension of this great drama. Mary Ellen Boario sponsored this program.
