Map showing the rout of the Mobile & North Western Railroad, and its connections by land and sea.

Many southern towns were left in ashes following the American Civil War. At the war’s end Mobile experienced a major reconstruction of its buildings and damaged railroad system.

Construction of the Mobile & North Western Railroad began in 1870. The line carried goods and passengers from Mobile northwest to Canton and Yazoo City where convenient connections could be made.

The line became part of the Louisville, New Orleans & Texas Railway system in 1889.

In 1892 it was instilled into the Illinois Railroad system.

Mississippi counities, Sunflower and Leflore, were divided in 1871. At that time the county seat for Sunflower County was moved to Johnsonville.

The main map of Mississippi and vicinity shows relief, drainage, cities, towns, counties, and railroad network.

The inset map is a general map of the southern United States and Mexico. The maps were published in 1871 by G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co.
