John W. Garrett and the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad by Kathleen Waters Sander( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 753 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Chartered in 1827 as the country's first railroad, the legendary Baltimore and Ohio played a unique role in the nation's great railroad drama and became the model for American railroading. John W. Garrett, who served as president of the B&O from 1858 to 1884, ranked among the great power brokers of the time. In this gripping and well-researched account, historian Kathleen Waters Sander tells the story of the B&O's beginning and its unprecedented plan to build a rail line from Baltimore over the Allegheny Mountains to the Ohio River, considered to be the most ambitious engineering feat of its time. The B&O's success ignited "railroad fever" and helped to catapult railroading to America's most influential industry in the nineteenth century."--Publisher's description

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 642 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary Elizabeth Garrett was one of the most influential philanthropists and activists of the Gilded Age. With Mary's legacy all but forgotten, [author] recounts in impressive detail the life and times of this remarkable woman, whose adult life spanned the turbulent years of the Civil War and the Progressive Era of the early twentieth century. At once a captivating biography of Garrett and an epic account of the rise of commerce, railroading, and women's rights, [author's] work re-examines the great social and political movements of the age."--Jacket
