Travelers' Accounts of the Historic Alexandria Waterfront
This compilation is the result of years of hard work done by Alexandria Archaeology volunteers, as they have extracted important passages relevant to the Alexandria waterfront from an assortment of primary sources and other sources, including Pen Portraits by T. Michael Miller. Although there is variation among the citations for each source, every passage has been cited as accurately as possible with the information available. For example, passages from Pen Portraits have a citation for the book, (Miller, Michael T., ed. “Deposition of John Muir, Age 57.” Pen Portraits of Alexandria, Virginia, 1739- 1900. Maryland: Heritage Books Inc., 1987, p. 12.), as well as a citation for their original source (Prince William County, Virginia, Land Causes, 1789-1793.) Another example of variations within this document are the terms used for the Alexandria newspaper, because different authors have cited the same source but changed the order of the words, e.g., Virginia Gazette versus Alexandria Gazette.
