Map of the Richmond and Louisville Railroad, connecting the railroads of Virginia with the railroads of Kentucky on the shortest route east and west of the Mississippi Valley to the Atlantic Ocean.

The Richmond and Louisville Railroad was created in 1882 when the Richmond & Southwestern Railway merged with the Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio Narrow Gauge Railroad.

Richmond had been a big locomotive manufacturing center before the civil war, but remained slow to advance during its reconstruction years. Meanwhile, Louisville began to prosper with the new technology.

In February of 1882, Oscar Wilde gave a well-attended lecture on “The English Renaissance” at the Masonic Templein Louisville.

This map of the eastern United States was published in 1882 by G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co. It displays relief, drainage, cities, towns, counties, and railroad network of 1882.

Mineral regions are clearly labeled.

Displayed are portions of Kentucky, North Carolina, Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and West Virginia.
