I'll be amending this post on a regular basis before, and most likely after now and then, we begin the campaign with relevant information, links, background data, and other bits of information.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Old West Background Links
http://www.legendsofamerica.com/LA-OldWestLegends.html
(Good general background info there for those not necessarily as familiar with the Old West - pay particular attention to the "Western Slang and Phrases")

http://www.cprr.org/Museum/index.html
(Good information on the Central Pacific Railroad, it's routes, history, and other information)


Old West Map Links
http://www.livgenmi.com/1895/
(Excellent map resource for individual states and counties. Although the information is based on 1890's information, very useful for our purposes)

http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~usgenweb/maps/ (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/%7Eusgenweb/maps/)
(More maps of the Old West, similar to the above link but with some other information)

http://www.libs.uga.edu/darchive/hargrett/maps/cilil.html
(Interesting Civil War maps - useful for history and background information during character biography and development)

(Old West Railroad map circa 1882 - good resource for rail line information)
