The Civil Wars famous Great Locomotive Chase comes to life with The General
train set! On April 12, 1862, James J. Andrew and a group of Union
raiders commandeered the Souths American 4-4-0, named The General, from the
Western and Atlantic Railroad. Their daring plan was to sabotage rebel railroad
lines deep behind enemy lines. An alert W&ARR conductor, William Fuller, noticed
the locomotive moving and with two fellow employees was soon in hot pursuit
through the mountains of Northern Georgia. They followed The General on foot
until they were able to commandeer another locomotive, The Texas, to continue
the chase. After many stops to uproot track and cut telegraph lines, The General
ran out of wood fuel and water and was abandoned. Andrews Raiders were later
captured outside Chattanooga. Some were able to escape from jail, but eight were
hung as spies. The youngest of the Raiders, 19-year-old Jacob Parrott, was the
first soldier awarded the Medal of Honor by Secretary of War Stanton.
