Dr. Rudolph Daniel will be at the South Sioux City Public Library, 2121 Dakota Avenue, in South Sioux City Nebraska to discuss Trains of the Civil War on Wednesday night April 13th at 6:30 p.m.
The railroads, as with other forms of infrastructure played a vital role during the Civil War. The side that best mastered railroad technology would have a great advantage in the war effort.
The month of April is a significant month in Civil War history with the attack on Fort Sumter on April 12th, 1861 and Lee’s surrender to Grant on April 9, 1865. This program will prove to be intriguing to both the Civil War buff and the railroad buff.
The program is free of charge and open to all people interested. If you have questions on this program call the library at 402-494-7545.
