Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania presents The Role of Railroads in Pennsylvania During the Civil War

Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania presents The Role of Railroads in Pennsylvania During the Civil War, an exhibition on view through Sunday, December 30, 2012.

Railroads were a key to the successes of both the Union and Confederacy during the Civil War, and the contributions of Pennsylvania’s railroads were an integral part of the Union’s eventual victory. From supplying the armies with munitions and food to transporting troops, prisoners and communications, the Civil War was the first war in which railroads were a major factor.

Access to this exhibit is part of the regular admission.
