    3Some interesting material buried in the fulff
    By Mark Johansen
    Some interesting material, but I was disappointed that it really had very little to say. Lots of scenes of re-enactors saying "hey we're re-enacting". They must have said "it's important to remember our history" about 6000 times, but then never told the audience that history. At one point someone says that there are a lot of myths about the Pony Express and we need to separate the fact from the myth. Then they never told us what those myths are or what the truth is! Long drawn out scene of people standing around the grave of one of the founders and talking about how important he was, with no discussion of what he did or why it was important. Etc. Maybe 15 minutes actually telling us things about the Pony Express and 90 minutes telling us how people should learn more about the Pony Express.

    By lovedogs
    I was hoping it would be more about the pony express and the trial and tribulations the riders went through. While the history was given, it was narrated in anticipation of the celebration of the anniversary. I was sorry to learn that it happened a few years ago and I missed it. I never heard about it and they went through SLC which is near my hometown. I might have driven down to join in the festivities. I wanted more of the story of the pony express.

    4Pony Express, the starting point for many of America's Heroes.
    By Lars1470
    Very well done. Nice Videos of reenactors and current riders. Would have liked to see more about some of the famous people who rode for the Pony Express. Also more stories of the heroism and courage and endurance. And of course more details of what is in Museums. Otherwise, I really enjoyed the presentation.
