Northeast & Southwest Alabama

This road was chartered in 1853 to connect Meridian, Mississippi to Chattanooga. But because of money problems, only 15 miles of track had been laid by July 1862. The road was completed the 27 miles from Meridian to York as part of the Confederate Government's completing a railroad line from Selma to Vicksburg.
