The Cover

"Fort Harker, Kansas—South Side," a watercolor by German-born Hermann Stieffel, was probably painted about 1870. Stieffel was for 24 years a private in the Fifth U.S. infantry, and was stationed at Fort Harker, Ellsworth county, in 1867-1873. This painting, showing the infant Union Pacific railroad, is one of three Fort Harker originals still extant. Two are owned by the Smithsonian Institution (cover, and see facing page), and the third by the Ellsworth county Historical Society (facing page).

A story of the buildling of the Union Pacific railway, Eatern Division, begins on p. 161.
