1871. $500. Number 113. Coupons 6 through 40 attached. Signed by S Fisher, Alexander Isaacs, HH Delury, Edwin Bates, and A Simoreds (names are approximate). The last three were trustees. Early! Chartered in 1854, this 120-mile line was built to serve as a link in a potential seaboard route through the Carolinas and Georgia. Such a railroad, it was thought a rail line like this would enhance the prosperity of the coastal region and make it more competitive with the rapidly growing upcountry. Following extensive service to the Confederacy during the Civil War, the line was reorganized in 1866.
