How Dutch Investment Helped Build American Railroads

by Veenendaal Jr., Augustus J.

Railroad historians have long been aware of Dutch investment in the building of American railroads, but until this book it has not been known how massive this investment was. This book writes a new chapter in the history of American railroads and in the history of American finance. “The author has done extensive research in the Dutch records, and his book will be of great help in tracing the financial history of many American railroads as it not only presents the Dutch viewpoint but also tells the results of the investment.” - The Lexington Quarterly.
