Hand-colored map showing the railroads that operated as military lines during the Civil War. Most of Tennessee's railroads came under the Union's military control during the war. In addition to the restored nation's railroad network in 1866, the map shows towns, Civil War forts, rivers, lakes, mountains, islands, sounds, and bays. The legend denotes the gauges of various railroads, which differed between North and South and had to be standardized after the war. On the reverse of this fragile map:""John Claybrooke President of Tennessee and Alabama Railroad."
