Hell on Wheels season 4. Actor Jake Weber plays the role as Governor John Campbell, enemy of Mr Durant because he was also the overseer of the Union Pacific railroad. And Mr Durant (actor Colm Meaney) dislikes to be in control.

In Hell on Wheels season 4, Governor John Campbell is sadistic, corrupt, and unfair. However, the real John Allen Campbell (October 8, 1835 – July 14, 1880) was a little different.

In fact, he was a smart person, who even served as a publicity writer, and what is more important, John Allen Campbell approved the first law in United States history explicitly granting women the right to vote. For sure in Hell on Wheels season 4, Eva (astress Robin McLeavy) and Ruth (Kasha Kropinski) would be happy! Anyway, this important law was approved on December 10, 1869 and precisely, this day is commemorated as Wyoming Day.

Real John Campbell was born in Salem, Ohio, where he attended public school. In 1861, he joined the Union Army in the Civil War, and successfully served as adjutant general on Major General John M. Schofield staff. He advanced from lieutenant to brevet brigadier general.

In 1869, President Ulysses S. Grant appointed him Governor of Wyoming Territory. Wyoming Territory (the same as in Hell on Wheels season 4 TV show) was without any law or order. He organized the government, opened courts, and set about establishing law and order. His labor was excellent and was reelected in 1873.

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
