Is this guy really Durant's Union Pacific figurehead president (John A. Dix)? The biography mentions nothing about trains other than (wishful?) references. His biography would indicate he would have been otherwise occupied during the construction of the First Transcontinental Railroad. Thanks. Americasroof 01:36, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
I'll answer my own question -- he's the guy. Thanks to be references! Americasroof 02:04, 19 December 2006 (UTC)

'Considered too old for field command, although some believe Dix's most distinguished contribution during the war was the suppression of the New York Draft Riots in July 1863, the rioting had already subsided by the time he replaced General John E. Wool.' Valetude (talk) 16:18, 5 October 2013 (UTC)
