Union Pacific Railroad

Western Union
May 1868

UPRR Crew:

Help!  The railroad is under attack. Last August the Southern Cheyenne attacked the freight cars at Plum Creek in Nebraska, and they continue to bother the railroad.  Our crews can't work when they are carrying rifles with them.

Find out why these Native Americans are angry at the railroad.  Present a brief report about the Indians of the prairie. You can earn miles of track based on the quality of your report.  Be ready to answer some questions to earn bonus miles.

Grenville Dodge
Chief Engineer of the Union Pacific Railroad
