1 Maritime Alexandria [Virginia]: The Rise and Fall of an American Entrepôt
Donald G. Shomette
(2003), 2008, 5½x8½, paper, index, 328 pp, Heritage Books
Join the author on a wonderful voyage into the past and discover how Alexandria's origins, and the mosaic of its life was influenced, and at times governed, by its relationship to the Potomac River, the Chesapeake Bay, and the great world beyond. This fascinating work is the result of research conducted to assess the potential submerged historic resource base-historic shipwrecks, harbor facilities, and other culturally relevant archaeological features-lying within and adjacent to the waters of the Alexandria waterfront, and buried beneath lands reclaimed from the river during earlier times. In order to fully understand the resource potentials from an archaeological perspective, it was first necessary to reconstruct the context of Alexandria's long maritime history from archival record. The dynamic waterfront development and the evolution of the seafaring industry of this once major maritime entrepôt are presented in a holistic manner, complete with numerous illustrations, maps, and tables.Donald Shomette is director of Cultural Resource Management, a historical consultant for the US Navy and the National Geographic Society, and a former staff member for the Library of Congress.

Now on CD-ROM! Formally established as a town in 1749, Alexandria grew into “the economic, social-political and ecclesiastical epicenter of Northern Virginia. …Besides its commercial and maritime importance, Alexandria was a center of early church activity…Besides administering to the spiritual needs of their congregations, the Alexandria clergy were frequently requested to perform the sacrament of marriage. The record of these marriages forms the basis of this volume. …Few Alexandria marriage records have survived prior to 1801…The current list of Marriage Bonds and Minister Returns have been transcribed from ten rolls of microfilm prepared by the Virginia State Library and available at the Alexandria Library, Lloyd House. …Bonds were first required in Virginia in 1660. All persons wishing to be married had to post a bond and secure a license from the county clerk stating that there was no legal impediment to prevent the marriage. The clerk would then prepare the license and it would be presented to a minister who would conduct the service.” This volume includes a list of Alexandria ministers and their church affiliation. and is divided into two sections: Minister Returns and Marriage Bonds. In each section, the grooms are listed alphabetically by their surnames. To find brides, bondsmen, parents, and aliases, the researcher can check the fullname index provided at the end.
