THE PONY EXPRESS

The Pony Express was created to expedite communication with the American West.  It consisted of a 2000 mile trail, which started in St. Joseph, Missouri and ended in Sacrament, California.  Men rode horseback for 75 to 100 miles and then passed on their letters to the next rider.  This formed a kind of relay team of postal workers. 

The first ride took place on April 3, 1860.  The Pony Express quickly grew to "100 stations, 80 riders, and 400-500 horses."  Although the trail ride was very dangerous, only one delivery was ever lost.  After ninteen months, The Pony Express closed on October 24, 1861 when the Pacific Telegraph Line was completed.
