    schema:description "In 1858 Waterman Lily Ormsby, Jr., recorded his experiences on the first Butterfield Overland Mail coach traveling from Missouri to San Francisco. In the 1930s Roscoe and Margaret Conkling drove the route again in the 1930 Buick and published three volumes of their research. Now A.C. and Judy Greene have made a 1990s version of the ride in their own "celerity wagon"--A Lincoln Mark VII."@en ;
