Seventy Three years later, on September 8, 1942, the Golden Spike was 'Un-driven" at Promontory Summit during an unusual ceremony that largely replicated the original event in reverse. The tracks were then torn up for military use during World War II, whereafter promontory was largely forgotten. This is the illustrated story of the Un-Driving of the Golden Spike in 1942 and the various personalities involved with this unique event. It is also the remarkable story of a century long struggle to have America rediscover the historical significance of Promontory Summit, which culminated in the establishment of today's Golden Spike National Historic Site. Soft cover.
