"The Pony Express" record album

Description:

Record Album produced by CRG (Children's Record Guild), a Ddivision of the American Recording Society in New York. The story of the Pony Express is told by John Griggs through dramatic narrative and interpretations; the recording also includes three songs performed by the Gene Lowell Chorus. The three songs highlight Buffalo Bill, Wild Bill Hickok, and Pony Bob Haslam as Pony Express riders. Of the three, only Pony Bob Haslam has been confirmed as an official Pony Express rider through historical documents.

This item is not a part of the museum's permanent object collections. It is used here only as an example of the many popular culture pieces that have been produced to commemorate or celebrate the Pony Express.
