The Pony Express operated for only 18 months. It greatly reduced the time it took for messages to reach from the east coast to the west coast. However, the invention of the telegraph soon followed.
"Wild Bill" Hickok never actually rode for the Pony Express, though he did join its parent company, Russell, Waddell & Majors Freight Company, when he was 21.
