For want of a nail, the shoe was lost;For want of the shoe, the horse was lost;For want of the horse, the rider was lost;For want of the rider, the battle was lost;For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost;And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

The original fast mail “Pony Express”had messages carried by horseback riders in relays to stations across all kinds of terrain. It was eventually replaced by the telegraph; it has remained at the heart of the lore of the American West…Just one of the many ways man has sought to deliver messages over time.
