NP, GI 7/26/1862

From the Gainesville Independent (Gainesville, Ala.)
July 26, 1862
Our railroad is completed {to Gainesville, not to Tuscaloosa}; as we write the iron horse stands by our door giving his usual signs of life. After many hindrances and disappointments, the work, in so far as track laying is concerned, is done and those who have the work in hand and have devoted to it their means and aid have the proud satisfaction of seeing their purposes, in so far, accomplished.
