Lives on the Railroad
Online exhibit examining the central role railroads played in American life during the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. Trains carried people, agricultural products, manufactured goods, and the daily mail to all parts of the country. Although railroad travel made long-distance travel possible for anyone who could afford a ticket or catch a “free ride,” Jim Crow laws forced African Americans to ride in segregated train cars while traveling through the South. This is the ninth section of the online exhibition America on the Move.
