Dr. Nelson H. Jackson and Sewall Crocker were the first automobilists to successfully traverse the United States. The transcontinental automobile trip took place in 1903 from California to New York.
Needless to say there name will go down in American Automobile history as the pathfinders between the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean.
The trip took 64 days, including breakdowns, delays while waiting for parts to arrive, and hoisting the Winton up and over rocky terrain and mudholes.
The journey was done in a slightly used 20 horsepower Winton Touring Car along with one extra passenger, "Bud The Dog". "Bud The Dog" along with Jackson and Crocker's much publicized journey caused people to think about the possibilities of long distance automobile travel in the United States.
