C of G Rebuilding after Shermans March to Savannah

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Central of Georgia Railway Historical Soc : One Thread

I am seeking information on when the Central repaired tracks connecting Augusta to Macon after Sherman"s March? Wheeler was able to save track connecting Augusta to Waynesboro. This is the only information I have on this research. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The book The Railroads of the Confederacy has a good deal of information about Sherman's destruction of this Railroad and also about its rebuilding. The author is Robert C. Black III. Your Library probably has a copy. If not it can be purchased from Amazon.com or Barnesandnoble.com.
