Numerous posts have mentioned the requirement of the railroad system to feed Lee and Richmond from southwestern Georgia. Longstreet, in northeastern Tennessee, and Johnston in northern Georgia, were also supported, to some extent, from this area. Below are figures from the South Western Railroad annual reports to show the amount shipped out. The corn numbers do not show the amount consumed locally, the amount fed to hogs and the amount sent to Andersonville. Corn shipped 150 bushels per car; bacon was 16,000 lbs per car.
