David Butterfield‘s first wagon train — carrying 150,000 lbs. of goods and escorted by 250 troopers — left Atchinson, KS, on the Smokey Hill Route for Denver, CO, 592 miles west. Improvements were made to the route as they went and locations for stage way-stations were selected. Butterfield Overland Dispatch+2 stagecoaches would soon follow.  {001}Old West Daily Reader Subscribe Today
