Explanation: Pony Express method of deliveringThe Pony Express was the quickest mode of passing on the news to and from the West.The Pony Express would cover a distance of about 2000 miles at a reasonable time through a unique system.There were 184 stations which were around 10 miles apart.The horse would cover a 10 mile distance at top speed before getting tired.The rider and the horse were changed at each station.After every 75 to 100 miles the rider would get a home station where he would take rest and pass over the mail pouch to the new rider.Since most of the riders were young they rode fast at times upto 100 miles a day.
Need of Pony ExpressIn the year 1848 when gold was found in California many people rushed there to get a hold of it.Many people started living there leaving their families in East.The train lines to California was not completed till 1869 as result it took a pretty long time to reach Missouri with the help of a horse.It was difficult for someone who has a shop in California to get in touch with their family members as there were no train,phone etc.This led to the introduction of Pony Express which was the fastest way to get news to and from the West.
Decline of the services of Pony ExpressThe Pony Express was an integral part of daily life.The Civil War of 1861 brought bad news for the owners of Pony Express.On 24th October 1861 the first telegraph line to California was finished which linked them to the rest of the country in quick time.People could send messages instantly.On 26th April the Pony Express finally closed.
