In the aftermath of this feat, several railroads raced for the prize of a southern transcontinental route.

Those are Palmer's legacies and a living reminder of his role in opening the region's resources to industry, commerce, agriculture, and colonization. Although revered in his lifetime, he shunned publicity, leaving questions about the character, personality, influences, motives and relationships of William Jackson Palmer.
