The Pony Express

Post by valerie »

April 3, 1860 marked the start of the Pony Express.

An earlier ad in The Sacramento Union read: Wanted: Young, skinny,

wiry fellows. Not over 18. Must be expert riders. Willing to risk death

daily. Orphans preferred.

That was interesting site and great piece of history. Thanks for posting it. :D

I've always been intrigued by the Pony Express, since the show "Young Riders"
