"To the People of Rockbridge" Broadside
Scope and Contents
This broadside by the Valley Railroad titled 'To the People of Rockbridge' outlines funding for the railroad to be built through the county. It asks the people of Rockbridge to help finance the railroad by buying stock in it. It makes the argument that the county's prosperity depends on the railroad. It says students at Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute should no longer be expected to walk through the mire to travel to and from their families and that the railroad will add value to property and give the county access to trade markets.
