In 1857, the United States Post Office Department extended bids for mail service along what became known as the "southern route" from Memphis, Tennessee, to San Francisco, California, through New Mexico and Arizona. The contract was given to the Butterfield Overland Mail Company and service ran until the Civil War started in 1861. Wells Fargo was the primary lender to the company and took control when it suffered financial difficulties in 1859. After the southern route was disbanded, the Overland Mail Company moved its operations to the central line between Salt Lake City and Sacramento.

  • Szlak lądowy (ang. Overland Trail) był transkontynentalną drogą amerykańskich osadników i pionierów rozpoczynającą się i kończącą w kilku różnych miejscach. Opierał się przeważnie na tradycyjnych szlakach północnoamerykańskich Indian i łączył się z tzw. wielkim szlakiem prowadzącym na Wschodnie Wybrzeże. W roku 1862, podczas wojny secesyjnej, zbudowano - dla ochrony połączenia Kalifornii ze stanami Unii - Fort Ruby (w pobliżu miejscowości Hobson (Nevada)).
