Summary, etc.:
"The Civil War tore a hole in the country, creating a wound that was almost impossible to heal. At a time when the two sides of the nation were still struggling to accept the war's casualties, something else came along to unite the country again. It was the Transcontinental Railroad- a line of train tracks stretching from one side of the war-torn country to the next"--P. [4] of cover.
