Kansas Train Tales: A Collection of Railroad History

by Robert Collins
 
As railroads crossed 1860s Kansas, laws were passed that would allow only one railroad to lay track across Indian Territory south to Texas.

The Race to Indian Territory recounts the story

Overview

As railroads crossed 1860s Kansas, laws were passed that would allow only one railroad to lay track across Indian Territory south to Texas.

Three railroads, the Missouri River, Fort Scott & Gulf; the Leavenworth, Lawrence & Galveston; and the Missouri, Kansas & Texas, raced to be first and to become a national line.

The Race to Indian Territory recounts the story from early Kansas history. It tells of those important and interesting men involved in the race and the towns the tracks came to. It separates fact from legend, and reveals the race's surprising outcome.
