Train Robbers Hoped For Early End To Civil War

Train Robbers Hoped For Early End To Civil War

This year marks 155 years since a daring operation happened in Georgia to try and end the Civil War. A team of Union soldiers planned to steal a train, and destroy railroad bridges, tunnels, and telegraph lines to the South. All of this was a plot to derail the Confederacy. The locomotive captured in that raid is now on display at the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History in Kennesaw. We talked with historian Marc Wortman , who wrote about the train robbery for The Daily Beast.
