The Northern Pacific Railway was a transcontinental railroad that operated across the northern tier of the western United States, from Minnesota to the Pacific Northwest. It was approved by Congress in 1864 and given nearly forty million acres of land grants. Construction began in 1870 and the main line from the Great Lakes to the Pacific was ceremoniously completed when former President Ulysses S. Grant drove in the final "golden spike" in western Montana on September 8th, 1883. The railroad had about 6,800 miles of track and served a large area, including Idaho, Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin. In addition, Northern Pacific had an international branch to Winnipeg, Manitoba. The main activities were shipping wheat, cattle, timber, and minerals, as well as consumer goods and passenger transport.
