Chapel Hill, NC: University of North Carolina Press, 1952. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Item #46579
The Civil War was a railroad war from beginning to end. The noble names of the Confederate wood-burning locomotives showed the pride of a new nation, and their clanging bells rang the death knell of a lost cause. 360 pages with maps, photographic plates, notes, bibliography and index. Foldout map tipped onto the rear endpaper. Four Civil War titles listed on the rear panel of the dust jacket. Very good in a good dust jacket with small chips, tears and wear.
