Ground Breaking, Union Pacific Railroad, Omaha, Nebraska


FYI.  An article that I found in the Newark Daily Advertiser, Newark, NJ. The article refers to a ground breaking in Omaha.  Do you have a Nov. or Dec. 1863 photo showing this??  I would like to see it.  

What strikes me is how the article is so blaise about the railroad. This was a major thing.  Like computers today.
