    STAGECOACH ROUTES???

    I had at one time on Google Earth all the butterfield and overland stagecoach routes and stations. My computer crashed a while back and I lost everything. I do not know where I had downloaded those stage stations and routes from to post it on Google Earth.

    Any help
    If I was President; I would take away welfare! I wouldn't make any bargains with foreign countries! I wouldn't take #@*& from any country! I would close the borders! I would get rid of taxes! I would make EVERYONE own at least 5 guns! I would ENFORCE Finders Keepers Law !!!!!!!!

    Don't know off hand. But I will look through my collection of maps and routes and let you know. Most likely just schedules and timetables but maybe I can put a route on a map.

    Too many places, too little time!

    Re: STAGECOACH ROUTES???

    A friend of mine, Gerald T. Ahnert , just recently published a book on the Butterfield Trail & Overland Mail Company in Arizona 1858-1861. The book contains ninety-five maps showing the location of the 400 mile trail and twenty-six stage station sites in Arizona. Currently Mr. Anhnert is in the Klondike taking care of his mining interests there but by the end of September he usually returns home to Syracuse, N.Y.. I dont know if you could do a Google search for his address but I do know his name pops up. I have a copy of the book and I must say it is well written and , because he has actually walked the trail, the maps are spot on. If you are truely interested in this history I suggest your contacting Mr. Anhert and purchasing a copy of this book. I think the price is in the $20-$30 range..and contains 185 pages.

    Oldhunter67, sounds like valuable info. I may get a copy just for grins. Have relatives in AZ and maybe a combined family/detecting/nugget hunting trip could work out.

    I do a lot of research with Google maps and find more interesting places to search than a guy could do in a lifetime. Arizona would be ideal. Maybe

    in winter. Last couple times there the temps were 110+ and I really couldn't enjoy any detecting. Cooler weather, maybe in the high country would be better.

    Are you familiar with the detector store in Idaho(?) that puts together guided nugget hunting trips to Arizona? That would be fun. Maybe I'll check that out again. Thanks for the book info.

    Re: STAGECOACH ROUTES???

    That was a book he wrote in 1973..The book I was referring to was just published in the Spring of 2010.
    When I last talked with him , just before he left for the Klondike , he said that when he got back he would start making the book available for all. Fortunately I purchased one of the first copies. I know he took a great deal of time matching old maps with new maps and he even gives you which part of the trail is on Federal, Private and State land. Buried within its story is a great treasure lead..I intend to discuss it with him when he returns home..I have always said that history books should be read cover to cover..even if only one sentence gives you a lead..you still have that lead...and this is a good one..And no...Im not giving that one away...but one thing that did pique my interest was that the wagons actually had a means to measure how many miles a day they traveled..Who would have thought that back then they could do that...Interesting!!
    And he explains that in depth too...I should be his promoter...Lol...Anyway..great book..many things in there that I will bet you will say... I did'nt know that...And Gerry if you read this...well...it is a great book..and I was glad you let me watch , and learn , while you put it together over the past year or so. Congrats. That being said I know Mr. Ahnert would appreciate my saying that GPS positions given within the book are COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL and cannot be collected and sold without his permission as is other information given within the book..We knew that anyway..didn't we?

    Re: STAGECOACH ROUTES???

    The list of Butterfield Stage Stations listed here I think are based on information listed in Wikipedia. At least it looks like it.
    These lists are usually taken from the Postmaster General's report compiled by Bailey. He was assigned to ride on the first Butterfield stagecoach to make his report. For many reasons, he misspelled many of the station names or reported them not as Butterfield's names, but what seemed sensible to him. I stopped counting the inaccuracies in Wikipedia at twenty-five. There was no sense going on. I also see in one entry on this topic here that the map that is commonly used to show the route of the trail is the intended route before it was actually built. You will note that it does not show the trail going down into Mexico after it left Arizona. It reentered California near New River. The misinformation on the Butterfield Trail in Arizona (and elsewhere) is incredible.
    The initial count of the stations in Arizona was seventeen in September 1858 and when it ended in March 1861 there were twenty-five. The total number of stations from 1858-61 was twenty-six. There is only one identifiable ruins that exist today and that is of the protected site of Dragoon Springs Stage Station. I have tried to correct many of the old falsehoods in my new book published April 2011 titled "The Butterfield Trail and Overland Mail Company in Arizona, 1858-1861."
    No Butterfield stagecoach in Arizona was ever held up by outlaws and the Apache Indians only attacked a Butterfield Stagecoach once. This was in February 1861 and they only slowed down the mail.
    There are no known Butterfield Overland stagecoaches in Arizona as all the employees, livestock, and equipment were ordered transferred to the northern trail in March 1861 because of the advancing Confederate Army. Also, not Concord or Troy style stagecoaches were used in Arizona. Only the Celerity stagecoach was used.
    I could go on and on, but I guess that is why a wrote my latest book, just so I could do that. There are over ninety maps in the book with many photos, historical drawings. and many GPS locations. Everything in the book is copyrighted including the body of GPS locations. This is the result of over forty years of work and many of the GPS locations are uniquely attributed to my research.
    I wrote the book in hopes of preserving the history of the trail in Arizona and to give information to protect the remaining physical route of the trail.
