Nevada: The Telegram
James H. Guild has a unique challenge: his telegraph company has been asked by the Governor of Nevada Territory to send the longest telegram ever sent — over 250 pages of text! He agrees to the task, but knows that the only two operators that can handle that amount of work … can’t stand each other. One is a republican and the other is a democrat during one of the most contentious elections in American history: Lincoln vs. McClellan. And the fate of the union rests on them getting the job done.
