Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad
Annual Report of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad Company for the Year Ending Sept. 30, 1862
Ritchie & Dunnavant
Primary source material from railroads in the Confederacy is difficult to find. Even annual reports, like this one, are harder to acquire than their Union counterparts. The line was partially destroyed, partially occupied by the enemy and partially under its own control. The changing fortunes of war against the Confederacy would eventually lead to the line being heavily damaged and it would enter the post-war world as a shell of its former self.
