The Madeira Mamore Expedition of 1877-1879
(alternate spellings found = Madiera Maderia & Mamoré)

The Disastrous American Expedition of 1878 that included the contractors P. & T. Collins (Col. George Earl Church) and the laborers who went to Brazil to build a railroad was also called the "The Railroad of Death" and a "railroad from no-place to no-where".  It was estimated that a worker died for every sleeper that was laid in the jungle and the loss of workers was on a scale that rivaled the Panama Canal project. The purpose of this project is to create a database of names by transcribing newspaper accounts, books and other sources about the expedition. Careful attention has been given to separate these names from the later Farquar/Jekyll expedition of 1907-1912.  Thousands of men from many countries lost their lives in both expeditions. Most of the participants in the 1877-1879 were from PA, NJ, DE and NY.

Enrollment is always through your local college

The names in the database below were transcribed as they were read and there are probably a few duplicates. I found that newspaper reporters and their type setters made many spelling mistakes - all variations found are shown. Over 700+ names are indexed from about 225 different sources - mostly newspaper articles from 1877, 1878 and 1879. Hand written letters were often mailed from Brazil back to local newspapers and several dozen were published - they make very interesting reading. If you have a diary, photo or anything else not included on the source code page please contact Bob Moyer at: rccarch@gmail.com and I'll be happy to add it.
