Or was it?
Interestingly, one of my convention-run Timemaster adventures -- "Postage Due" -- takes place on this very date in history! In my adventure, the mail DOESN'T get through on that fateful night. Time Corps agents are sent back to April 14, 1860, to investigate and ensure that the inaugaral run of the Pony Express succeeds as history shows.
So rather than noodling around with today's Google Doodle, how about saddling up, traveling back in time, and putting history back on the correct path?
