Riding the Rails to Victory

$ 30.00

 – NEW– 1 night (2 hrs.) – The 1850s had seen enormous growth in the railroad industry, but the Civil War was the first war in which railroads were a major factor. From the Pratt Street riots in Baltimore on April 19, 1861, until the surrenders at Appomattox and Durham Station in April 1865, railroads would play a key role in how both sides conducted their operations, both offensively and defensively. This course will focus on the many major battles and campaigns whose outcomes, without the railroads, could have been drastically altered.
