Title: Twelve Momentous Years In The Other Atlanta 1853-1865, With Post Civil War Glimpses of Central Illinois

Author: Norma Adams Price and Paul A. Adams

Description: Signed by Paul Adams on title page. Boards in red cloth with gilt lettering. Clean and unmarked. Dust jacket has a very small chip near at top corner of the front panel with a short closed tear nearby; short scuff mark on front panel (near title); not price clipped. DJ in clear archival sleeve. 179, xv pages.

Drawing upon old letters, diaries, newspapers, county and census records, Civil War rosters, and oral histories, the authors have created a vivid picture of the far-flung effects which the coming of ''The Iron Horse,'' the Chicago and Alton Railroad, had upon Central Illinois in the years 1853-1865.

Scores of families who played significant roles in the life of the city and in the Civil War appear in the pages. Lists of original lot purchasers, business owners, early church members, 1856 and 1863 tax payers, and rosters of Civil War enlistees are included in the richly illustrated text. The book also has a source list and a comprehensive index (with approximately 4000 names).
