US Railways Were Built with Slave LaborSlaves "formed the backbone of the South's railway labor force of track repairmen, station helpers, brakemen, firemen & sometimes even enginemen," , according to historian Walter Licht. Norfolk Southern declines to confirm ownership of individual rail lines from the 19th century but says it owns "80% or more" of the 39 identified by Kornweibel. It won't comment on whether the lines were built and run with slave labor or related questions.
