The railroads got ’em West and the West never left 'em.
Southerners heard about the beauty of the American West. About the newly created parks. The Indians. The intrigue got to a lot of them, as they took off from Kentucky or North Carolina for the summer. Which turned into a year. Longer. You might still see some old ghost type on a building around the South telling you to See America First. And I wish you would, as long as you See Dixie Last.
