When the Civil War began the B&O quickly became the most important railroad in the nation. Located entirely within the state of Maryland and the present day state of West Virginia, it represented the only direct rail link between Washington, DC, and the loyal states. Throughout the war, its destruction was a constant objective of the Confederacy. Dan Toomey will explore this “First Front” concept as presented in his book The War Came by Train: The Baltimore & Ohio Railroad During the Civil War."
