The Railroads of the South, 1865-1900 : A Study in Finance and Control, Paperback / softback Book

The Railroads of the South, 1865-1900 : A Study in Finance and Control Paperback / softback


In the struggle for power from which emerged the modern railroad network, the southern railroads, which had originally been locally financed, came largely under the influence or control of northern financiers and institutions.

The focus of this book is on that aspect of southern railroad development, but in a larger sense it is the story of the creation of one of the most important components of the New South.
