*The Transcontinental Railroad was built in 1862 because the president needed a way to transport goods and soldiers from one part of the continent to the other.
*The Transcontinental Railroad was nearly one thousand dollars just to build the railroad across the continent.
*The people that worked on the Railroad were very brave because at times they would have to bomb their way through a mountain. Sometimes when they planned it out, they didn't plan it out very smartly becausesometimes hundreds of workers would end up dead from just one bomb!
*The Transcontinental Railroad was finished on May 10th, 1869. After Governer Leland Stanford fails to hit the golden spike on his first time, he strikes again and pounds the spike into the ground revealing what is now called the Transcontinental Railroad!
*The End!!!* Period 4
