Once serving as the capital of the United States for three days, the town of Leesburg, Virginia stands at the crossroads of American history. As a rural hinterland of the Washington, D.C. area and situated on the northern fringe of the old Confederacy, Leesburg has seen troops and generals, travelers and settlers, and politicians and presidents walk its streets, and opposing political views tear its population apart. Unity and patriotism returned and characterized the town during the world wars. With the arrival of nearby Dulles International Airport in the 1960s, Leesburg and its surrounding towns experienced a different kind of movement-tremendous population growth.Today, Leesburg is a vital and fast-paced part of Northern Virginia's economy. Yet, despite its modern edge, the town has maintained its old rural character and has striven to preserve its colorful 245-year-old history.

From Book 1: It begins as a lark -- a harmless diversion initiated by Washington, D.C., hostess Ruth Bennett as a means of entertaining her visiting niece, Sara. But the séance conducted in Ruth's elegant Georgetown home calls something back; something unwelcome ... and palpably evil. Suddenly Sara is speaking in a voice not her own, transformed into a miserable, whimpering creature so unlike her normal, sensible self. No tricks or talismans will dispel the malevolence that now plagues the inhabitants of this haunted place -- until a dark history of treachery, lust, and violence is exposed. But the cost might well be the sanity and the lives of the living.

Battle of Ball's Bluff: Staff Ride Guide (American Civil War History: Battle of Ball's Bluff) (English Edition)
The Battle of Ball's Bluff provides important lessons in small unit actions, leadership, tactical planning, and the role of courage and military professionalism under fire. On the night of 20 October 1861, Union Brig. Gen. Charles P. Stone set out to attack what had been reported as a small, unguarded Confederate camp near Leesburg, Virginia. Later, after Stone learned there was no camp, he allowed the operation to continue, now modified to capture Leesburg itself. But a lack of adequate communication, problems with logistics, and violations of the principles of war hampered the operation. What was originally meant to be a small raid turned into a military disaster.The action resulted in the death of a popular U.S. senator and long-time friend of President Abraham Lincoln, the arrest and imprisonment of General Stone, and the creation of a congressional oversight committee that would keep senior Union commanders looking over their shoulders for the remainder of the war. For such a small and relatively insignificant military action, Ball's Bluff would cast a long shadow. The purpose of this Ball's Bluff staff ride is to learn from the past by analyzing the battle through the eyes of the men who were there, both leaders and rank-and-file soldiers. The battle contains many lessons i...

There is no better way to see America than on foot. And there is no better way to appreciate what you are looking at than with a walking tour.

Every tour also includes a quick primer on identifying architectural styles seen on American streets.Leesburg has always been a crossroads town; today it is US Highway 15 running north-south and Virginia Highway 7 running east-west. In Colonial times those routes were known as the Carolina Road and the Potomac Ridge Road. In 1757 the Virginia Assembly designated the small settlement at the crossroads for the seat of its new Loudoun County. The land at that time was owned by Nicholas Minor and he knew how to take advantage of his political windfall. He had his 60 acres platted into 70 lots which he began selling for £3 with the provision that a brick, stone or wood house be constructed within three years or the property would revert back to Minor. Thus was a town built.Minor called his utopia George Town but the King's name was jettisoned the following year in favor of the Lee family, whose members Phili...

A Little Short of Boats: The Battles of Ball's Bluff & Edwards Ferry, October 21-22, 1861 (English Edition)
“A Little Short of Boats will appeal especially to readers interested in tactical battle studies. This reviewer recommends it enthusiastically.” —Civil War News “Perhaps a small demonstration on your part would have the effect to move them,” wrote Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan to Brig. Gen. Charles P. Stone on October 20, 1861. The simple telegram triggered the “demonstration” by Col. Edward Baker’s brigade the following day—that evolved into the bloody subject of this book. Opposing the Union effort was Brig. Gen. Nathan “Shanks” Evans’ small Confederate command at Leesburg. When he learned of the enemy plans, Evans shuttled troops from Edwards Ferry to Ball’s Bluff, where Baker pushed his brigade across the upper reaches of the Potomac. His troops were on open ground, ill-organized, and with their backs to the river when the Southern infantry attacked. The twelve fitful hours of fighting that followed ended in one of the worst defeats, proportionally speaking, that either side would suffer during the Civil War, wrecked a Union general’s career, and killed Baker—a sitting US senator and one of Abraham Lincoln’s good friends. The news rocked a Northern populace already reeling from the recent disasters of Bull Run and Wilson’s Creek. Bas...

"Dreams of a Promised Land" is a continuation of a series that began with the novel "Crimes of a Guilty Land". The series follows the story of the Beauchamp family from the early nineteenth century. "Dreams of a Promised Land" takes the story from 1920 through the early 1970s.“…The P-51 Mustang was in a full power dive. The airframe was shaking as it reached or most likely exceeded its maximum rated airspeed, but Adam Beauchamp was calm and focused as the new and revolutionary enemy Me262 jet fighter came within range. This was the moment he had trained for…”That moment in Adam Beauchamp’s life seemed far removed from the simple and almost idyllic years when he was growing up in Leesburg, Florida. After being abandoned by his parents at a young age, he had been raised by a loving couple who taught him the basics of life. He had spent hours with his Uncle Vernon fishing on Lake Harris, and he had enjoyed so many whimsical and fun filled times with friends. During one Spring-time, at the age of fourteen, he spent some time in Micanopy, Florida. There he not only found his future vocation in life, but he also learned a thing or two about girls. But during his childhood years, Adam was also continually reminded of his being an African American boy. He was black, and he grad...

In 1963, more than 30 African-American girls ages 11 to 16 were arrested for taking part in Civil Rights protests in Americus, Georgia. They were taken without their families' knowledge to a Civil War–era stockade in Leesburg, Georgia, where they were confined in unsanitary conditions and exposed to brutal treatment. Over the following weeks, their commitment to the fight for equality was put to the test. Combining historical research and personal interviews with several of the girls, Heather E. Schwartz brings this true story of the Civil Rights Movement to life.
