  1. The Railroads

    As we know, the railroads, and who controlled them (or destroyed them) was vitally important to Civil War planning and operations. And we all know the significance of the Memphis & Charleston R.R: the de facto assembly of a Federal force at Pittsburg Landing followed from efforts to cut that line, and the Mobile & Ohio. But, did you know it was possible to ride from New Orleans to Richmond, with only a couple of changes of train line, in cities like Memphis, Knoxville, and Bristol? Albert Sidney Johnston made that journey in August 1861, completing his epic trek from California. If maps can tell the story, then the best site I have run across is Confederate Railroads, by David L. Bright: http://www.csa-railroads.com/index.htm Click on the link, then select [maps]: the CSA railroads are displayed via 'Eastern Railroads' and 'Western Railroads.' Follow the numbers indicated, to find the name of that railroad line. Of additional interest: more detailed city/locality maps (drawn during the war) are available for several dozen locations, including Memphis, Corinth, Murfreesboro, Clarksville and Bowling Green, at 'City and Area Maps.' The site makes use of Railroads of the Confederacy by Robert Blake, and links to Library of Congress and other resource sites. Cheers Ozzy
