I can’t thank you enough for this press…
“I wanted to drop you a few lines to let you know how thrilled we are with the new Legend press we purchased. I can’t thank you enough for this press, it delivered above and beyond all expectations we had. The setup is truly phenomenal, I can’t believe how easy and fast we can have a job up and running. The accuracy of the micro registration is something I have not seen in any other press I have used. I can’t tell you how much time we have saved in setup and run time with this press, it practically pays for itself the more we use it. I have never bought a piece of equipment that delivered up to and beyond it’s advertised capabilities like the legend press. My only regret is that I didn’t purchase one sooner. When other printers ask what printing press we own I am proud to tell them I own the best screen printing press on the market, a Antec Legend.”

Not everyone could manage a stagecoach. The stagecoach driver was held in higher esteem when on the summit of the Sierra than was the millionaire statesman who might be riding beside him.
While most stage drivers were sober, at least while on duty, nearly all were fond of an occasional “eye-opener.” A good driver was the captain of his craft. He was feared by his timid passengers, awed by stable boys, and was the trusty agent of his employer.
The seat next to the driver, weather permitting, was the preferred seat of male passengers. But this was one seat that was reserved, and it was not gotten by simply being the first to hop on the left front wheel rim and climbing into the box.
If the driver didn’t want the person who took the seat there, he would firmly order him down and then enjoy the passenger’s discomfiture for the next ten miles.
To sit in the driver’s seat, one proceeded very much in the manner of securing an appointment to a high office. He went to the source of authority—above the driver himself—to the superintendent and even to the president of the company.
Charley Parkhurst was one of the more skillful stagecoach drivers, not only in California but throughout the west. He was variously called “One-eyed” or “Cockeyed” Charley because he had lost an eye when kicked by a horse. For 20 years, he drove a stagecoach in California. Twice, Charley was held up. The first time, he was forced to throw down his strongbox because he was unarmed. The second time, he was prepared.
When a road agent ordered the stage to stop and commanded Charley to throw down its strongbox, Parkhurst leveled a shotgun blast into the chest of the outlaw, whipped his horses into a full gallop, and left the bandit in the road.
One-eyed Charley was known as one of the toughest, roughest, and the most daring of stagecoach drivers. Like most drivers, he was proud of his skill in the extremely difficult job as a “whip.” Proper handling of the horses and the great coaches was an art that required much practice, experience, and not the least, courage.
Whips received high salaries for the times, sometimes as much as $125 a month, plus room and board.
“How in the world can you see your way through this dust?” one passenger asked Charley.
“Smell it. Fact is,” Charley replied, “I’ve traveled over these mountains so often I can tell where the road is by the sound of the wheels. When they rattle, I’m on hard ground; when they don’t rattle I gen’r’lly look over the side to see where she’s agoing.”
Yet, little was really known about Charley Parkhurst before or after he came to California. It wasn’t until his body was prepared for burial that his true secret was discovered.
Charlotte “Charley” Parkhurst was a woman. One doctor claimed that at some point in her life, she had been a mother.
Unknowingly, Parkhurst could claim a national first. After voting on Election Day, November 3, 1868, Charley was probably the first woman to cast a ballot in any election. It wasn’t until 52 years later that the right to vote was guaranteed to women by the nineteenth amendment.

All stagecoach drivers, including Charley, considered their whips worth their weight in gold. Drivers considered their whips a badge of honor.
Some drivers would as soon be caught without their pants as without their whips. Many of the whips used by the stage drivers were fine works of art, generally ornamented with handcrafted silver ferules girdling a handle made of hickory. Many of these whips are prized museum pieces today.
Whips were never sold, loaned, borrowed, or traded. In his book, “Stagecoach Days in Santa Barbara County, Walker A. Tompkins wrote, “Whips were considered a part of the driver, who kept the lashes well-oiled and as pliable as “a snake in the sun.”
Most stagecoach whips had buckskin lashes, usually from 11 to 12 feet in length, attached to a five-foot hickory shaft. The lashes were 10 feet too short to reach the lead team, which was controlled by reining. Some rare drivers did carry a “six-horse whip” with a 22-foot lash, but these were mainly for circus and rodeo appearances and considered too unwieldy for practical use.
The driver took his whip with him when off duty, and always hung it up. He never rested it in a corner for fear of warping the stock. Neither did he wrap the lash around the handle for fear of curling the thongs.
Stagecoach drivers were scornful of the way they were depicted in the movies. The top-grade stagecoach driver used cracking of the whip sparingly. These drivers were concerned that the “pistol-shot” sounds made by the whips would only startle their passengers out of their naps or, worse yet, spook their teams.
Roads had to be built at public expense before stagecoaches were given a route. Some were little more than ox-cart tracks linking the various ranchos. Even the El Camino Real, the storied “King’s Highway”, was little more than a foot trail.
A tale is told about stage driver, Whispering George Cooper. He got his name because of his loud bellow, which was said could be heard for miles, even against a wind, while he pushed his team up a treacherous pass. At one point, Whispering George needed to repair a broken singletree that had developed a bad split. He scoured the stage for a bit of rope or a scrap of baling wire, to make the repair.
At that moment, a rattlesnake slithering across the road in front of them spooked his team. George killed the snake, which measured five feet or more in length. A passenger commented on how much the snake resembled a rope.
“By Gawd, that’s what I’ll use it for!” exclaimed George. He wrapped the dead snake around the single tree and knotted it into place. It worked, holding the damaged single tree together until it reached a relay station.
The term “stagecoach” came about in medieval Europe when public coach travel was the only way one could get from one point to another without walking.

Trips were generally made in easy stages because of bad roads and the lack of overnight lodgings along the way. Hence, the term “stage” coach.
