Item description for Going Up the Potomac: A Heritage Tour of George Washington's from the Tidewater to the Forks of the Ohio (Capital Travels) by David Lillard...

To many the Potomac River means Washington, D.C., but over the rivers length much of Americas history has been preservedfrom its earliest colonies through the steamboat era, canals and railroading. It is George Washingtons river. His lifelong quest was to connect the Tidewater Potomac with the Forks of the Ohio in todays Pittsburgh, Pa.

Going Up the Potomac charts a course along one of Americas great rivers and most preserved landscapes. It explores the state and national parks and historic sites, and its great natural beauty in scenes as diverse as crabbers near the Chesapeake to the dramatic cliffs of the Allegheny Front. Along the way, youll meet people who are nearly as diverse as its landscape in the cities and small towns and the historic and natural heritage sites that line the river. When you take this exciting land or water cruise along George Washingtons river, youll be captured by the essence of the Nation as it grew up from the earliest days of the Republic to modern times.

Going Up the Potomac explores the heritage sites, towns, scenery, and natural beauty of this historic river corridor with a county-by-county guide to its attractions and back roads. It includes Create Your Own Journey: customized itineraries based on fun themes for families, romantic getaways, educational excursions, and countryside tourism.
