More Description


In 1785, Alexandrians were concerned about pirates of Algiers; changing trade and navigation regulations, especially those of Great Britain and France; commercial ties with the Caribbean, the British Isles and Europe; tensions between Austria, Prussia, France, England, the Republic of Holland, Turkey, and Russia; frontier settlement and conflict between Indians and whites; and, disputes with Great Britain over frontier posts of the North West.

"As did other Americans, Alexandrians wondered if the states, newly united, could act in concert but remain separate. Alexandria was founded, shaped, and lived or died based on trade and transportation. It could not survive in the 1785 world -- let alone prosper -- by itself."
