On March 10, 1869, railroad officials, political leaders and work gangs converged at Promontory Point, Utah, to drive in the last spike of the Pacific Railroad, the first of five transcontinental railroads built in the 19th century. The driving of the spike linked the Union Pacific line built from East to West with the Central Pacific, which had commenced construction in California.

The "Golden Spike" is the ceremonial final spike driven by Leland Stanford to join the rails of the First Transcontinental Railroad across the US connecting the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads on May 10, 1869, at Promontory Summit, UT Territory. With the American Civil War raging and a secessionist movement in California gaining steam, the need for the railroad became urgent.

Montague, Central Pacific Railroad, shakes hands with Grenville M. Dodge, Union Pacific Railroad (center right). American frontier - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
May 10, 1869, the ceremonial Golden Spike was struck, connecting the Union Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacific Railroad. The 2000 miles of transcontinental track reduced the overland trip from four to six months to six days.
Engines from the Union Pacific Railroad (right) and the Central Pacific Railroad (left) met at Promontory Summit, Utah, on May 10, 1869, to commemorate the completion of the transcontinental railroad.
On This Day, May 10th, in 1869: The First Transcontinental Railroad was completed with the driving of a golden spike in Promontory Summit, Utah. The railroad connected Council Bluff, Iowa/Omaha, Nebraska with Sacramento, California. The project was a combined effort between Union Pacific Railroad and the Central Pacific Railroad of California.
The First Transcontinental Railroad was a contiguous railroad line constructed between 1863 and 1869 to connect the Pacific coast with the existing eastern rail network in Iowa. Opened for through traffic on May 10, 1869 with the ceremonial driving of the "Last Spike" with a silver hammer at Promontory Summit, the road established a transcontinental transportation network that revolutionized the settlement of the American West.
Six years after work began in 1862, the laborers of the Central Pacific Railroad from the west and the Union Pacific Railroad from the east met at Promontory Summit, Utah. It was there on May 10, 1869 that Governor Leland Stanford (one of the “Big Four” owners of the Central Pacific) drove the Golden Spike on the special tie of polished California laurel The completion of the transcontinental railroad was the world’s first live mass-media event: the hammer...
Connecting a continent... Industrialist Leland Stanford is credited for organizing an idea to build a new railroad infrastructure that would connect the still-young nation. So it was that Congress passed the Pacific Railroad Act in 1862, guaranteeing public land grants and loans to the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific railroads. Work began in 1866 from Omaha and Sacramento, and on May 10, 1869, in Promontory, Utah, the "golden spike" was driven connecting the two rail lines.
We will be discussing the Transcontinental Railroad on this blog until Monday evening. This is an assignment that you need to be a participant. You will have fun and you will learn a lot from your classmates on this really interesting and important part of not just California History but American History. I will be…
