Historical Tours Alexandria, Virginia

Walk the Path of America's Founding Fathers

Frederick Knops

Alexandria is one of America’s most important Colonial towns. Sitting in the shadow of the nation’s capital, it was the home of George Washington, the launching point of the French and Indian war, and the site of the Thomas Jefferson’s inaugural ball. Alexandria is now the site of hundreds of architecturally and historically significant buildings, streets named after the heroes of America’s founding, and is home to numerous boutiques and gourmet restaurants. Historical Tours: Alexandria, Virginia takes the reader on an exploration of this storied American city from its beginnings, including the history behind its street names and founding families. Included are biographies, archival photos, maps, and timelines that add further texture to the history of this remarkable place. « less more »
