East Tennessee & Georgia

The road was reorganized from the Hiwassee Railroad in 1848 and completed in 1855 (through Dalton, Georgia). A better route, through Cleveland, opened in 1858.

The vast majority of the copper produced by the Confederacy entered the rail system at Cleveland. The loss of the road near Cleveland in 1863 caused a crisis in the Confederate armaments system and the closing down of the Ducktown, Tennessee copper mines.

Shortly before the loss of the connection to the Western & Atlantic RR in the Fall of 1863, the President and Superintendent removed all the rolling stock and shops to Georgia, using Augusta as a base of operations.
