Bloomsburg Theater Ensemble presents a preview of “All Aboard: The Story of the First Transcontinental Railroad” at the Library on Saturday, March 25 at 12:00pm. Free!
Imagine… it’s 1863, Abraham Lincoln is President, and you are traveling from New York to California. Your trip by stagecoach or maybe even a boat around the southern tip of South America will take six months! Yet six short years later the travel time is only one week thanks to an epic human contest and one of the greatest engineering feats of the 19th century; the first transcontinental railroad.
