What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Ranks as one of the most important recent works in railroad history. Allen Trelease expertly traces the development of this strategic southern pike from its opening in 1856 until its lease to the Richmond & Danville Railroad fifteen years later. He offers fascinating detail, in a pleasantly written fashion, that will appeal to every student of the iron horse. Trelease's achievement is immense and impressive.—H. Roger Grant, editor of Railroad History



Students of North Carolina's and the American South's economic development will find in Trelease's discussion abundant information and good leads for future investigation. Trelease has given us both a solid corporate history and a wealth of evidence for which other scholars should be grateful.—Journal of Economic History
