What a nightmare of an infrastructure project this was! Also, it was instrumental to the annihilation of American bison, the displacement and massacre of indigenous people, and the first widespread economic and cultural abuse of legal immigrants (Chinese workers).

So, there's more than just a Golden Spike to remember.
