In telling the story of the North Carolina Railroad's independent
years (1849-71), Trelease covers all aspects of the company and its
development, including its construction and rolling stock; its
management, labor force, and labor policies; its passenger and
freight operations; and its role in the Civil War. He also assesses
the impact of the railroad on the economic and social development
of North Carolina.
