You’ve probably heard of the Pony Express but how much do you know about the 1,900 mile trail from St. Joseph, Missouri, to Sacramento, California?
Take a virtual ride alongside the Pony Express riders. History comes alive with an hour of exclusive video stories of the people, places, and events along the trail. The Pony riders had to follow a 10 day timetable, but you don’t have to. Complete the 10 lesson (plus final project) series on your schedule. Everything you need for this course is included (except a pencil)!
This course is for anyone who has reading skills at middle-school or higher, student or adult.

What brings a smile to my face is the route of the Pony Express is generally similar to the route of Interstate 80. I’ve been back and forth between Illinois and The West on I-80 many times. In fact, I-80’s western terminus is at the west end of the San Francisco Bay Bridge. In other words, anyone with a car and the time can see the general route of the Pony Express.
A good route is a good route! Large sections of the Pony Express route were part of the Oregon Trail, the Mormon Trail, and were also used by stagecoach lines. It is so easy to think of these historic routes as belonging only to the past, yet you have correctly reminded us that a similar route is still used by thousands of people every day.
