Historical Context

The Buffalo, Bradford and Pittsburgh Rail Road was one of the many that was manipulated by the venerable threesome of Daniel Drew (known as Uncle Daniel, and a former drover of cattle), Jim Fisk (roly-poly son of a Vermont peddler, and stock broker on Wall Street), and Jay Gould (whom the New York Times called a “pirate and a scourge”).

Together they engineered a tremendous swindle on the Erie Railroad, when they unloaded the Buffalo, Bradford and Pittsburgh for the purchase price of $2,000,000 in Erie convertible bonds; which was 8 times the true value of the road!
