Description: 

The Civil War story Drusilla tells Bayard and Ringo begins with a group of Confederate soldiers "slipping into the roundhouse" at a railroad center in Atlanta in order to liberate a locomotive from the Yankees. The original name of Atlanta was 'Terminus,' because it was the end of the railway that was being built in the 1830s to link coastal Georgia to the U.S. interior. By the time of the Civil War it was called Atlanta, and was one of the South's great railroad centers.
