Jersey City, New Jersey: But various unofficial estimates have been made.
Railroads and Manifest Destiny. However, it recently occurred to me that the railroad truly made America in a deeper and more profound way. What first came to my attention with the effect of a light bulb switched on were the relative dates for two key events: Asa Whitney [first] submitted his plan for a Pacific railroad to Congress through his representatives in January Sullivan — in an essay about Texasbut with reference to "the railroad".
Whether they will then attach themselves to our Union or not, is not to be predicted with any certainty. Unless the projected rail-road across the continent to the Pacific be carried into effect, perhaps they may not; though even in that case, the day is not distant when the Empires of the Atlantic and Pacific would again flow together into one, as soon as their inland border should approach each other.
But that great work, colossal as appears the plan on its first suggestion, cannot remain long unbuilt. Langley, New York, July, The telegraph has to be part of it.
It is very difficult to asign motive to anyone, but I am convinced that there was essentially no interest in western expansion at the time of the Louisiana Purchase. The negotiations were only for New Orleans and west Florida.
The French threw in that country west of the Mississippi at the last hour. But by when settlers began moving to Oregon by the wagonload, this clearly had changed. Texas fits in here, too, but there seems to have been a mixed bag of expectations — whether it was really American expansion, or merely emigration.

Anyway, does this notion that the mere potential of the railroad opened [or played a previously unrecognized role in opening] the frontier deserve more research?

That is the kind of thing I'm wondering about in regard to railroads. We — railroad historians — spend a lot of time recording the development of particular technological features and the construction of miles of track, but what about the expectations that railroads inspired?
There is a story — perhaps more myth than true — that Leland Stanford told his seasick wife on their way to California that he would build her a railroad for her return journey.
I wonder if people really went to California thinking they could ride a train home someday. Indeed, many did just that, whether they imagined it would happen or not.
Texas State Historical Association,makes a strong case [based on statistical analysis of the writing styles of O'Sullivan and McManus using signed articles by each of them for comparison] that Jane McManus [a staff writer for John L.4.
