Charleston & Savannah

The road was chartered in 1853, with work started in 1856 and completed in 1860. There was little local support for the road since neither of its two cities wanted to improve the prospects of the other in their continuing competition to be the major port of the southeast. The Confederacy, however, found it to be very useful as an alternate to sending Georgia traffic through Augusta and as a way to quickly move defending troops between Charleston and Savannah, as Union threats required.
