Description - The Northern Railroads in the Civil War, 1861-1865 by Thomas Weber
Time has been very good to Thomas Weber's premier account of the impact of the railroads on the American Civil War and vice versa. Although it has been out of print since the 1970s, it has never been out of demand. Weber's analysis shows not only how the North was helped to victory through its effective use of the rails, but also how the war changed the way railroads were built, run and financed in the years after the war.
