Issued for 1874 to N.H. Hotchkiss, traveling agent for the Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad. Signed by Reuben Raglans, president. Black print, gray border. Reverse has paper and glue residue. Ran from Petersburg, Virginia, south to Garysburg, North Carolina. Chartered in 1830, opened in 1833. The Petersburg Railroad was a busy player at the end of the Civil War. It carried food and equipment to General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia and carried supplies and sometimes prisoners of war south. Ulysses S. Grant severed these rails as part of the effort to cut supply lines to Petersburg for the Siege of Petersburg. The rails were also damaged in the Battle of Globe Tavern, the Battle of Jerusalem Plank Road and Second Battle of Ream's Station. (Potter Collection) Date: Location: Petersburg, Virginia HWAC# 60308
