Buchbeschreibung Allied Publishing Group (1985), Merriam, KS, 1985. Hard Cover. Zustand: Fine condition. Reprint. Octavo 325 pgs. Dark blue cloth. Alexander Majors (1814 1900) was a U.S. businessman, who along with William Hepburn Russell and William B. Waddell founded the Pony Express. In about 1860, the firm now known as "Russell, Majors and Waddell" formed the "Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company" to get the contract to deliver mail between Missouri and California, which had previously been held by Butterfield Overland Mail which was delivering the mail in 25 days or more over a route that went through the South. With Civil War clouds brewing, the group proposed delivering the mail over a central route through Salt Lake City, Utah and proposed doing it in 10 days via a horse relay called the Pony Express.Even though they succeeded in making the deliveries they did not get the contract and went bankrupt when the Transcontinental Telegraph opened in October 1861.He provided rail ties for the crews of the Union Pacific Railroad working on the first transcontinental railroad. After the railroad was completed, he continued to haul freight to towns not yet serviced by the railroad. Bestandsnummer des Verkäufers 3495
