Chicago, Illinois

Chicago is a rapidly growing city. The railroads go west from Chicago. The transcontinental route through Nebraska is to meet the track being laid from California to the east. This magnificent achievement will truly unite California with the rest of the country. Well I remember my first voyage to California that took me around South America to San Francisco. The boat sank close to my destination and I had to swim ashore.

My command will be west of the Mississippi and a major goal will be to facilitate the progress of the railroad by protecting it from the Indians.
