Brown Bag Lunch Lecture--"Transnationalism and the Transcontinental Railroad" by Christopher MacMahon, Ph.D.
Tuesday, October 12, 2021
This lecture examines international influences and contributions to the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. From immigrant workers, the clothes they wore and the foods they ate, to supplies and tools, this lecture argues that transnationalism through an emerging global market made the railroad possible.
Bring a lunch and enjoy a variety of history lectures and presentations from a range of speakers. The lecture series is held the second Tuesday of each month (except December) from 12pm-1pm at the Railroad Museum.
