Louisville, Cincinnati & Charleston Rail Road by H. Roger Grant Louisville, Cincinnati & Charleston Rail Road, Hardback (April 2014)

Among the grand antebellum plans to build railroads to interconnect the vast American republic, perhaps none was more ambitious than the Louisville, Cincinnati & Charleston. This book tells the story of the visionaries whose hopes for connecting North and South would require more than half a century - and one Civil War - to reach fruition.
