             Historical note 
             The Adams Express Company was founded in Boston in 1839. Originally called Burke and Company, its name was changed to Adams and Company after only two weeks when Alvin Adams agreed to buy out his partner. By 1850, the company had spread throughout the South, Southwest, and North. Much additional capital was invested at that time and the company's name was again changed to the Adams Express Company. During the Civil War, the company made a substantial amount of money shipping packages to and from the Union troops. In World War I, the government seized the railroad cars used by the express companies, and they lost money. The companies were merged into one large company, the Consolidated Express Company. Adams continued to exist but only as an investment company.
