Smartkid Review "Two things make this one of the best new programs of the year. First, the multi-media mix is darn near perfect, seamlessly combining old movie clips, rich graphics, video sequences and a rousing musical score. Next, and ultimately more important, the program uses an exciting story line - in this case a Confederate plot that must must be foiled - in order to involve kids with the issues of history."

Search DIGITAL HISTORY FEATURE - POSTAL WORKERS From the early days of Pony Express deliveries to today's worldwide services, technological advances have resulted in a huge postal industry that employs literally hundreds of thousands of people-from newly arrived immigrants to descendents of Native Americans. These materials, which include government documents, oral histories, and video clips, depict the postal service's evolution-from early letter carries and Pony Express riders to mechanized sorting, automobile delivery, and the jet age. Using these documents, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
  • What type of opportunities did the postal service offer in the early nineteenth century-and what types of hazards existed for those early letter carriers? How has technology affected the collecting, sorting, and delivering of mail in the United States? Why are working-class Americans from all walks of life particularly drawn to employment with the U.S. Postal Service?

EnRoute The Story Of The Pony Express
The Story Of The Pony Express
by Nancy Pope
Volume 1, Issue 2
The Pony Express is one of the most colorful episodes in American history, one which can be used to measure not only the growth of the nation, but the pioneering spirit of our predecessors. The name "Pony Express" evokes images of courageous young men crossing long stretches of country, frequently under harsh conditions, facing the constant threat of death. And, like so many legendary events of the "Old West," there have been wild exaggerations of the facts.
Despite the braggadocio, these young horsemen faced numerous dangers, such as thieves, deserts, or blizzards. Riders continued even at night when the only illumination came from the moon or flashes of lightening.
The Pony Express grew out of a need for swifter mail service between the East and West prior to the Civil War. After gold was discovered in 1848 in Sutter's Mill in California, prospectors joined with homesteaders flocking westward. That same year, the Post Office Department awarded a contract to the Pacific Mail Steamship Company to carry mail to California. Under the terms of the contract, the mail was carried by ship from New York to Panama, where it was taken across the Isthmus of Panama by horseback or rail, and then put aboard ships bound for San Francisco. Under the best of conditions, a letter could be carried to the West Coast in three or four weeks. But, that schedule was optimistic.

Pony Express Home Station #1 Location: Downtown Marysville Contact: Special Note: Closes during the winter months. Fee: Yes Harland J. Schuster . Please do not use without permission. Perhaps no period of American History is as nostalgic as that time we call "The Old Wild West". Unfortunately, to a certain extent, many folks have come to believe the stories of those times were largely a myth created by the Westerns made in Hollywood. Not true. There really was a Wild West; there really were cowboys and Indians a' shootin' at one another out here. One of the most colorful chapters of this time was the Pony Express, which ran from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California. Though a financial failure, the Pony Express was successful in capturing the public imagination. It still does to this day. When it advertised for riders, the ad stated they wanted "young, wiry menorphans preferred". This was no exaggeration. A lone rider following a predictable path on a predictable time table would be an easy target from ambush, both by sometimes hostile Indians, and by desperadoes. With only a six-gun and a swift horse for protection, the riders had to relay on guts and quick wits for their survival. Though only one rider was lost to hostile action, many had exciting tales to tell, most likely true. The Pony Express relied on a system of stations about 15 miles apart along the route, all the way to California. At these stations, the rider would switch to a fresh horse and continue the ride. About every 60 miles was a "home station". These were more extensive than the regular stations. Riders would be switched at these stations, as well as horses. They generally had more horses, as well as a blacksmith shop, and served as supply depots for the smaller stations in the area. The Home Station #1 at Marysville is the only remaining home station of the Pony Express still standing in its original location, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After the demise of the Pony Express, the building served a number of different purposes before being turned into a museum.

January/February 2002 Vol. 20.1 On the Trail of the Pony Express
During the brief nineteen-month operation of the Pony Express, its daredevil riders flashed across the country at break-neck speeds. In a similar way, their legend now flashes across the pages of American history, leaving in the dust historical footnotes, myths, and family stories. Until 1858, when the Overland Stage Line between San Francisco and St. Louis was established, the only direct connection between San Francisco and New York was via Panama–4,000 miles away by water. Once every fortnight great crowds gathered in San Francisco on "Steamer Day" to meet the incoming steamers that brought mail and newspapers, which often took anywhere from six months to a year to get around Cape Horn (South America) or via the Isthmus of Panama. At this time, more than half a million people lived west of the Rocky Mountains and it was slow and difficult for them to communicate with family, friends, and businesses in the East. They demanded better and faster mail service and more timely news of the rest of the country.

Christopher Corbett, author of Orphans Preferred: The Twisted Truth and Lasting Legend of the Pony Express. (Jim Burger/The Associated Press) By Martin Griffith
The Associated Press
RENO, Nev. Christopher Corbett was chasing down the truth about the Pony Express one day near Mud Springs, Neb., when a local shared some words of wisdom:
"We don't lie out here. We just remember big."
In his recent book, Orphans Preferred: The Twisted Truth and Lasting Legend of the Pony Express, Corbett examines fact and fiction about the short-lived mail relay that captured the expanding nation's imagination.
While carrying mail along the 1,950-mile route between St. Joseph, Mo., and Sacramento, Calif., in 1860 and 1861, wiry white horsemen fought American Indians and the elements, barren deserts and desperadoes.
Their grit is not in dispute.
