  • 3500


Beginning with the B&O's reaction to John Brown's Raid in 1859 and ending with the demobilization of the Union Army in 1865, the overall strategy and political aims of the time period are blended with the battles and daily operational challenges of a Civil War Railroad. The author shows how the railroad and the telegraph combined to conquer time and distance on the battlefield and ushered in the era of modern warfare with the introduction of armored railcars, hospital trains, and large-scale troop movements. (304pp. illus. index. hardcover. Baltimore & Ohio Railroad Museum, 2013.)
