The Butterfield Overland Mail, 1857-1859

Description

“Remember boys, nothing on God’s earth must stop the United States mail!”—John Butterfield’s instructions to his drivers. Over a period of eighteen years beginning in the 1920s, from their home in El Paso (once known as Franklin City), Texas, roughly halfway between St. Louis and San Francisco by the southern route, the Conklings traced the trail once followed by Butterfield stage wagons carrying the U.S. mail and passengers almost 3,000 miles from the Mississippi River, through southern Arizona, to the Pacific Coast.
