It is June 26th, 1867. On the 1st of May, Thomas Clark Durant of the Union Pacific Railroad was forced to resign due to years of mismanagement, shady financial dealings, and agonizingly fitful construction. This has given a huge boost to morale to the Central Pacific Railroad. One step ahead of his opponents, Durant has initiated a legal battle that further stalls construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. This has given the Central Pacific a much-needed advantage to finish conquering the Sierra Nevada mountain range. However, the Chinese Railroad workers have become aware of this and are now on strike. They are demanding better hours and wages for their work. Gathered today are the top officials of the Central Pacific Railroad, and it is up to these delegates to decide how to stop the strike and successfully conquer the Sierra Nevada range.
