Find out how an industry in its infancy helped end the US Civil War. In the early 1860s newly established railroads did not yet connect the entire nation but were pivotal in the outcome of the war. Guest speaker Don Chamberlain shows the role of railroads in moving men and supplies in battles like Shiloh, Chickamauga, and others, ultimately shaping America’s largest conflict of the 19th Century.
