This book is both the unique story of Alexandria before the Civil War and a comprehensive portrait of a seaboard antebellum community in transition. It depicts the economic, political, social, cultural and religious life of the city on the Potomac, emphasizing developments from the mid-1840s to the outbreak of war in 1861. The pages therein not only describe local happenings; they endeavor to relate events in the town with developments in other seaboard communities, especially in the South. Special attention is given to the class structure of the community and the prominent role which merchants and civic leaders played, as well as the part of ordinary people in the city's portrait.
