View of Jackson, Madison County, T.N., 1870 / drawn & published by A. Ruger.

This bird’s-eye view print of Jackson, Tennessee was drawn by Albert Ruger and published by Chicago Lith. Co. in 1870. Jackson was established in the 1800's as a railroad junction town which also held important railroad repair shops.

The Mobile & Ohio Railroad eventually reached Jackson in 1858. This key transportation line suffered greatly during the American Civil War due to constant sabotage. In the years following the war, Jackson maintained as an agricultural center with important railroad yards and railroad connections.
