Golden Spike in Washington, DC

Not aware of any factual basis for the claim that "the Chinese laborers jeered" at the railroad executives.

Also calling the golden spike "a sacred object " might seem to those who are actually religious to be mocking and disrespectful of their beliefs. Historically significant, definitely, "sacred," no.
