That The West May Remember

— America's First —

This monument was erected by the men and women of the Southern Pacific Company, who, in 1930, were carrying on the work he began in 1860. He convinced four Sacramento merchants that his plan was practical and enlisted their help. Ground was broken for the railroad January 8, 1863.

Judah died November 2, 1863.

The road was built past the site of this monument. Over the lofty Sierra - along the line of Judah's survey - to a junction with the Union Pacific at Promontory, Utah, where on May 10, 1869, the "last spike" was driven.
