I will be adding the Panic of 1873 as an additional section. Also try to beef up the Civil War section as well.-- Lucas20 (talk) 14:35, 4 February 2009 (UTC)

During the Panic of 1873?[edit]

"The bank closed during the Panic of 1873, overextended in railroad securities." This sentence may be incorrect, but the prior wording "The bank closed after the Panic of 1873..." was certainly incorrect, as the bank failure is viewed as a cause, not an effect of the panic. --DThomsen8 (talk) 02:39, 2 February 2011 (UTC)
