Summary

Summary

One of the most famous commando-type raids of the Civil War comes to life! Twenty Union soldiers and two civilians hijacked a train. Their mission - to head north and destroy bridges, rails and rolling stock on the Western & Atlantic Railroad connecting Atlanta and Chattanooga. As the Raiders headed north, Confederates commandeered several engines, including the "Texas," and the great locomotive chase was on.
