Robert Black presents a complex and fascinating tale, with the railroads of the American South playing the part of tragic hero in the Civil War: at first vigorous though immature- then overloaded, driven unmercifully, starved for iron- and eventually worn out—struggling on to inevitable destruction in the wake of Shermans army, carrying the Confederacy down with them.With maps of all the Confederate railroads and contemporary photographs and facsimiles of such documents as railroad tickets, timetables, and soldiers passes, the book will captivate railroad enthusiasts as well as readers interested in the Civil War.
