Transportation by trains had advanced in the years before the Civil War, which allowed for large numbers of troops to be transported. The system was still hampered with gaps in service, incompatible track gauges and lack of equipment. Join Howard Gregory at the Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox for this discussion of the importance of railroads during the Civil War. Cost: Free with Museum admission.
