Great question.

For those not familiar with it, here is a Wikipedia page with more info about the event which occurred on May 10, 1869: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_spike
Thank you!
Well I think there is an Irish project of some sort, do  not know about if it would cover the Irish Americans building west from the east coast, but fear there is not yet a project for the Chinese laborers who built the eastward going from the west coast part of the railroad.  I do not know if younger folks know how this day in history changed this country
