Cumberland Valley Railroad info requested for new book

Mar 11, 2009
York, Pennsylvania
Hi gang!

Cooper Wingert and I are currently co-writing a new book on the Cumberland Valley Railroad in the Civil War, to be published by Savas Beatie in 2019 or 2020. We are looking for photocopies or transcripts of pertinent letters, diaries, journals, and other first-person reminiscences and memoirs, as well as period photographs and modern images of CVRR artifacts/relics. The CVRR ran from Harrisburg PA southwesterly through Carlisle to Chambersburg, where it connected with the Franklin Railroad that ran on down through the valley to Hagerstown, Maryland.

Please let me know if you have anything that might interest us, or know someone that does.
