This is an undated three page article by Louis Palenske titled, "The Pony Express." Palenske was very well-traveled, and he developed a fondness for the American West, the subject of his panoramic photography. The Pony Express, which moved mail from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California using a series of relay horseback riders, was a subject of great interest to Palenske. The Pony Express only operated for nineteen months from April of 1860 through October of 1861. Funded by the National Historical Publications and Records Commission through the Kansas State Historical Records Advisory Board.

Creator: Palenske, Louis F., 1858-1943
