Flying from Denver to Oakland on Southwest this afternoon, I checked out a series called America Fact vs. Fiction on the American Heroes Channel. Not only was it a very interesting program, but it was pretty cool that 30,000 feet above the earth I saw proof that our great town of Strasburg is the true place where the transcontinental railroad was completed!:
Now, it wasn’t the first time I heard that…but it was the first time I learned exactly why we can claim this important milestone for our great country…thank you Kansas Pacific Railroad!
