CHINESE AMERICANS AND THE TRANSCONTINENTAL RAILROAD:

 
Steam powered locomotives were invented by an Englishman Richard Trevithick in 1804 and the first railroads and routes were built in Europe. In the 1850-60s, railroad lines were built on the East Coast to support the Civil War, mainly completed by the US Army.

Our Transcontinental Railroad (TCRR), built from 1863 – 1869 was the greatest infrastructure project in the 19th Century. Some historians and scientist have equated this project to putting a man on the moon in the 20th Century. The TCRR was the first transcontinental RR in the world. This western leg of the TCRR was 1,907 miles across connecting Sacramento, California to Council Bluffs, Iowa.
