Event Details

Railroads & the American Civil War

Still a widely debated topic to this day, the American Civil War was an historical conflict between the Northern and Southern states. However, a critical theme often overlooked when considering the trajectory of the Civil War was the importance of the railroad. Terry Koller, Manager of Railroad Operations at the Georgia State Railroad Museum, will present the history of the railroad industry during the 19th century and how it was a pivotal element in the downfall of the Confederacy.
