Page 45 has a minor ERROR - it says Davy Crockett rode a train in 1820 (but that is before trains were even invented). Mr. Murphy might also have mentioned how the Fred Harvey restaurants years later, improved on the passenger dining experience: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Harvey_Company .
Another entertaining and enlightening book I recommend for understanding the same American historical period, is "The Good Old Days: they were Terrible" by Otto Bettman, which is similarly illustrated.
Highly recomend for anyone interested in Pioneer times and life.
