  1. Rene,

    I am working on information re: General Dodge. I believe that he was instrumental in several battles because of his background in railroad engineering/surveying. I know that he rebuilt the line around Corinth; he was at the initial seige of Atlanta; Sherman, Grant and Lincoln thought highly of him, but I would love to know more specifics about his contribution to the War effort.
    Have you come across his name? or any other information?
    Dodge, of course, went on to become the Chief Engineeer for Union Pacific during the construction of the first transcon. railroad (which I know much more about).
    Any help would be great.
    Thanks
