Summary
""Follow the Flag" offers the first authoritative history of the Wabash Railroad Company, a once vital inter-regional carrier. The corporate saga of the Wabash involved the efforts of strong-willed and creative leaders, but this book provides more than a traditional business history. Noted transportation historian H. Roger Grant captures the human side of the Wabash, ranging from the medical doctors who created an effective hospital department to worker-sponsored social events. And Grant has not ignored the impact the Wabash had on businesses and communities in the "Heart of America.""--Jacket
