Original Sources

The following sources were developed for the Railroads and the Making of Modern America digital history project at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Because of copyright restrictions and other limitations, not all sources used in The Iron Way can be included here. The diaries and letters of Ephraim C. Dawes, for example, are held at the Newberry Library in Chicago and have not been reproduced for the digital project. However, wherever possible, we have tried to make available original sources for wider use and inquiry.
