Those who venture into the records of the C. S. Quartermaster bureau in the west quickly encounter the name V. K. Stevenson. I've just run across him in 1846. Seems he was active in promoting the creation of the Nashville and Chattanooga Railroad and spent much of the middle and late 1840s promoting the connection of Middle Tennessee to the Atlantic south. I'll post some quotations from selected letters and addreses Stevenson made to railroad investors over the next few weeks.
