Historical Flavor: Where is the Pony Express?

Sandra Ardoin @SandraArdoin

On April 3, 1860, the first Pony Express riders left St. Joseph, Missouri and Sacramento, California for the west and east, respectively. Its era lasted only a little over a year and a half, but oh my, what an impact! One hundred-fifty-seven years later, in this amazing age of instant communication, its fascination still holds.

I found this video from the Smithsonian to be fun and hope you enjoy it too!
