Memphis & Charleston

This extremely valuable cross-Confederacy road was chartered by Tennessee in 1846, Alabama in 1850, and Mississippi in 1851. Construction of the new road, and reconstruction of included older roads, began in 1851 and was completed in 1857. The road ran from Memphis to Stevenson, Alabama on its own track and into Chattanooga on Nashville & Chattanooga Railroad track.

This vital road was lost in April 1862 when its eastern headquarters, Huntsville, Alabama was captured. The loss of Memphis and Corinth, Mississippi completed the destruction of this east-west link.
