The main line of the Union Pacific Railroad was completed in 1869 and was a federally funded project that aimed to forge allegiances with California and Oregon as the nation prepared for the American Civil War outbreak. Published one year prior to the Panic of 1893 when the Union Pacific went bankrupt along with 153 other major railroads. The completion of the line marked the first transcontinental route and spurred cultural and economic growth throughout the United States.
Towns and cities sprang up around rail stops allowing farmers and ranchers to export their crops and cattle throughout the nation, which in turn sparked rapid expansion and urbanization during the latter half of the nineteenth century. With land sales from Government granted land, the Union Pacific was able to fund the construction, and the rail line became critical for shipping goods across the nation from large ports in San Francisco, Seattle, Portland, and Los Angeles. Additionally, the increased access to the American West helped the population boom in coastal cities from California to Washington.
This detailed illustration was completed by prominent American map publisher Leonard Knight and Company and bears a distinctive aesthetic which immediately transports the viewer back in time. This iconic route transformed America and is considered one of the most outstanding achievements of the nineteenth century. In the 1890s, rail was the primary transportation for goods, and with lower operating costs and faster speeds, trains allowed the nation to enter the Gilded Age at the turn of the century.
