1872. A Notable Civil-War General Attempts to Build a Railroad in Mexico [Mexico]. [Railroads]. Decreto Original y Alteraciones al Mismo de la Concesion del Ferrocarril y Telegrafo de Tuxpan. Mexico: Tip. de la v. e Hijos de Marguia, 1872. 33, [1] pp. Octavo (10-1/2" x 7"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in original printed wrappers. Covers darkened, light soiling and minor edgewear, small ink spot on front wrapper. Light browning, some chipping and foxing, creasing to corners of most leaves. Contemporary annotations to several leaves and two sheets of laid-in notes in Spanish and English. Rare. * Text of the original concession, issued to Antonio D. Richards, Santiago Smith, and Jose Brennan, facing the altered concession issued to General W. S. Rosecrans. "In 1868 President Johnson appointed Rosecrans to be Minister to Mexico. Five months later, President Grant terminated the appointment. His brief diplomatic career convinced him that a prosperous Mexico would need peace, immigration, and railways, and he applied for a concession to build a narrow-gauge railway and telegraph line from Tampico to the Coast. The record of toil and travel, scheming, waiting on rich men and politicians, and of the final collapse of his Mexican dreams, forms a wearying chapter of the frustrating years from 1869 through 1873. Yet he was almost the first, and perhaps the most important, in a long line of Yankee railroad promoters in Mexico.": Lamers, The Edge of Glory: A Biography of General William S. Rosecrans, U.S.A. No copies located on OCLC or KVK. One copy located in the Biblioteca Nacional de Mexico.
