Iowa Pacific Railroad Company, 1874 bond
I have a bond for The Iowa Pacific Railroad Company in the amount of 200 pounds, issued in 1874 by a London England firm. My question is what is or was the railroad. Where can I find more info on the railroad. I am a 5th grade teacher and it would be interesting to discuss this with my students. The bond was found in my deceased friend's house. Any info will be greatly appreciated.
