"MAY GOD CONTINUE THE UNITY OF OUR COUNTRY AS THIS RAILROAD UNITES THE
TWO GREAT OCEANS OF THIS WORLD." THE GOLD SPIKE CEREMONY AT PROMONTORY
UTAH IN MAY OF 1869 UNITED THE TRACKS OF THE CENTRAL PACIFIC AND UNION
PACIFIC RAILROADS, HOWEVER THE RAILS DID NOT SPAN THE UNITED STATES FROM
OCEAN TO OCEAN UNTIL SOME MONTHS LATER. IN SEPTEMBER THE FINAL LINK
BETWEEN SAN FRANCISCO AND SACRAMENTO WAS COMPLETED NEAR THE FLOUR
MILL OF JOSE VALLEJO, A SHORT DISTANCE EAST OF THIS LOCATION.
