Anthony Murphy
Birth: Nov. 29, 1829
Death: Dec. 28, 1909

Civil War Confederate Figure. During the Civil War he was the Foreman of Machinery and Motive Power for the Western and Atlantic Railroad in Northern Georgia, and a member of the crew of the locomotive “The General”. When "The General” was stolen in a raid made by the now-famous Andrews Raiders, he was one of first to alert Confederate authorities of the theft (taking it as a personal affront, since it was his train). He then joined the many Confederate Soldiers and Railway workers who pursued the Train and helped recapture it. He, along with conductor William Fuller, chased the Raiders over 87 miles, sometimes by “pole car”, sometimes on foot and finally in another Train, the “Texas”. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
