Map of the Southern Express Company.
This outline map showing routes and stations used by the Southern Express Company was published in 1884 by Walker, Evans & Cogswell from information compiled by Alfred M. Richardson.
The Southern Express Company was a logistic company that operated in the late 1800's throughout the Southern States. The privately owned firm, based in Atlanta, Georgia, was in the service of transporting certain parcels and valuables during the American Civil War. At that time the routes were of great concern for both sides.
This map follows the railroad routes indicating important stations, whistle-stops, and railroad offices.
