The transcontinental railroad is completed at a ceremony held in Promontory, Utah.

This event brings Utah and its Mormon residents into closer contact with the rest of the nation — and it brings the rest of the nation into closer contact with Mormon beliefs, practices, and families. As a consequence, hostility between Mormons and non-Mormons will increase for quite some time.
