NP, RCF 4/13A/1864

From the Raleigh Confederate
April 13, 1864
   We learn from the Charlotte Democrat, that the Directors of the Railroad leading from Charlotte to Statesville {Atlantic, Tennessee & Ohio RR}, have generously agreed to voluntarily surrender a portion of the rails to the Government for the purpose of completing the Danville connection. Such patriotic sacrifices by corporations or individuals is to be commended.
   We learn that only about six miles of the rails just above Mount Mourne will be taken up. The cars will continue to run between Mount Mourne and Charlotte, and as soon as enough strap iron can be obtained to put in place of the T rails removed, we presume the whole line will be put in operation again.
