Richmond, Fredericksburg & Potomac

The road was chartered in 1834 and began construction from Richmond that same year. Fredericksburg was reached in 1837. Acquia Creek was reached in 1842, where connections were made with steamboats. Also see Hungary Branch Railroad.

This was one of the two roads that sustained Richmond's defending army north of the city.
