Manassas Gap Railroad

The Manassas Gap Railroad (MGRR) was an historic intrastate railroad in the Southern United States which ran from Mount Jackson, Virginia to the Orange and Alexandria Railroad at a junction called "Manassas Junction", which later became the city of Manassas, Virginia. It was chartered by the Virginia General Assembly in 1850, and played a key role in early train raids of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad and Confederate troop movements during the early years of the American Civil War.

    The gap between the committed and the indifferent is a Sahara whose faint trails, followed by the mind’s eye only, fade out in sand.
