9780817354831: Travel On Southern Antebellum Railroads, 1828–1860

The matter-of-fact descriptive title of this interesting little volume on railroading in the pre–Civil War South does not do justice to Alvarez’s coverage of the subject. Along with his full account of trains and train accommodations, he manages to encompass a number of social, political, and even ideological subjects.

About the Author:

Eugene Alvarez served in the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War.  He later became a professor of history.  He is now retired and enjoys travelling and playing the harmonica.

Review:

“Here is a carefully researched account of all aspects of railroading—engines, cars, life aboard, perils of the road, stations—with much contemporary flavor [from] this boisterous era.” —Anniston Star

“A charming and informative examination of the early years of railroads. It is also history of the kind I like best: a study not of great events or momentous trends, but of how people lived.” — Jonathan Yardley, Miami Herald

“Excellently and extensively illustrated and can be recommended to all interested in trains and southern social history.”—Journal of Southern History
