Mobile & Ohio

The road was chartered in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Kentucky in 1848 as a way to bypass the slow, uncertain river travel to New Orleans with fast, reliable travel to Mobile. Construction began in 1852 and was completed at Corinth, Mississippi in April 1861, creating the longest railroad under a single charter in the US.
