It is one of the most famous moments in the history of the American West. And one of the least understood. Promontory, previously viewed on public television, takes you on a journey back in time to the days when the nation struggled to build the transcontinental railroad. As construction armies raced from east and west, it soon became clear they would meet in the most unlikely spot in the nation: The Utah Territory, which was under the leadership of Brigham Young. But getting there wasn’t easy with pride, greed and religion getting in the way. What happened next would change the face of Utah and the West forever.
Promontory was created locally by KUED, the University of Utah.
