With the shots fired at Fort Sumter on April 12, 1861, the War Between the States officially began 150 years ago. Railroading would play a key role in the Civil War, providing logistical support and carrying munitions, supplies, and troops to each side’s respective armies in the field.

A typical Confederate consist featured an assortment of commandeered railing stock bearing the names of a variety of Southern railroads.
