Poster for Lumberman's excursion to Jackson, Mississippi

“Lumberman’s Excursion to Jackson, Miss/ Illinois Central Railroad/ December 20, 1883/ At the Astonishingly Low Rates as given below.” Chicago: National Printing Company, Printers and Engravers.

Note: This broadside promotion by the Illinois Central Railroad attempts to interest lumbermen in purchasing Mississippi Delta acreage. The completion of the Illinois Central Railroad’s branch spur from Jackson to Yazoo City made it possible to ship timber more effectively from the Yazoo-Mississippi valley.
