Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Cheraw and Darlington Railroad was a shortline railroad that served South Carolina and, later, North Carolina, beginning before the American Civil War. The Cheraw and Darlington was chartered in 1849 and began operations in 1853, initially serving the area between Cheraw, South Carolina, and Darlington, South Carolina. Like many Southern lines, the Cheraw and Darlington Railroad suffered during the War Between the States. In the waning days of the conflict, a considerable portion of the carrier's infrastructure was ordered destroyed by invading Union forces. Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman sent a mounted infantry force to Florence, South Carolina, to level the depots, trestle-work, bridges, and public buildings and stores.show more
