Pre-Conference Athenian Leadership Dialogue: Nothing Like It in the World: The Men Who Built the Transcontinental Railroad 1863-69
Facilitated by Margy Greer and Susan Ortiz
Nothing Like It in the World gives the account of an unprecedented feat of engineering, vision, and courage. It is the story of the men who built the transcontinental railroad—the investors who risked their businesses and money; the enlightened politicians who understood its importance; the engineers and surveyors who risked, and sometimes lost, their lives; and the Irish and Chinese immigrants, the defeated Confederate soldiers, and the other laborers who did the backbreaking and dangerous work on the tracks.
The U.S. government pitted two companies—the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific Railroads—against each other in a race for funding, encouraging speed over caution. Locomotives, rails, and spikes were shipped from the East through Panama or around South America to the West or lugged across the country to the Plains. In Ambrose's hands, this enterprise, with its huge expenditure of brainpower, muscle, and sweat, comes vibrantly to life.
All Aboard! Full Steam Ahead!
This years conference will take place October 16-18, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Durango. More information on the sessions will be posted on the 2019 Annual Conference page.
