Charleston, South Carolina

Excerpt from Charleston, South Carolina To the Chamber of Commerce of Charleston: The Special Committee appointed by the Chamber of Commerce for the purpose of exhibiting the varied advantages of the City of Charleston, as a port of import and export for the trade and commerce of the Northwestern Cities and States of the United States, and of Central and South America, the West Indies and Europe, beg leave to submit the following preliminary report, in the hope that it will have the effect of directing public attention here and elsewhere to this important subject. Fifty years have passed since South Carolina first projected the building of a line of railroad to connect this City with the great food-producing region of the Northwest. Upon the uncompleted Blue Ridge Railroad, and upon distant lines in Tennessee expected to be connected with the South Carolina system of railroads, this State and City have expended, at different times, several million of dollars. The breaking out of the war alone prevented the completion of the Blue Ridge line, and the State, in 1865, found herself without the Western connections to which the people had looked forward for thirty years, while the railroads in the State were worn out or shattered. The first task was to reconstruct and equip the roads already in operation, but at no time, early or late, has there been an abandonment of the hope and purpose to carry out the plans which our farsighted citizens proposed in the earliest days of railroad building in the United States.
