Time itself in unchanged. However, a traveler would be in adifferent time zone, as at any given moment, the local time is 3hours earlier on the west coast (Pacific Time) than …the east coast(Eastern time).

There were noroads and no railroads, so travel was very dif…ficult, and at sometimes of the year it was impossible. A wagon could go about 30miles a day in good weather, so to travel the 3,000 miles from onecoast to the other would take at least 100 days, if everything wentwell.
