The National Road is a comprehensive history of the first federally financed interstate highway, an approximately 600-mile span that joined Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois in the nineteenth century. This book covers the road's contribution to the cultural, economic, and administrative history of the United States, its decline during the second half of the nineteenth century, and its revival in the twentieth century in the form of U.S. Route 40. The story of the National Road embraces an account of its building, its constitutional significance, the unique culture that it represented, the movements and trends that transpired across its route, and the symbolic value that it held, and continues to hold, for the American people. Beyond its status as an American heritage symbol, it serves as a forceful reminder that the United States must continue to pursue the goal of sustainable national investment that began with the National Road and comparable projects during the early republic.

Revision No. 1 (June 24, 2018) corrects index page numbers and adds or changes minor content.* Old Jamestown, Missouri, in far north St. Louis County, has a long and rich history that includes an American Indian settlement associated with Cahokia Mounds, land grant holders of English and Scottish heritage who arrived in the late 1700s, German immigrant farmers who came during the 1800s, and prominent wealthy families who arrived in the mid-1900s. As early as 1805, Old Jamestown ferries crossed the Missouri River to provide connections from St. Louis and Florissant to St. Charles County, which is home to Portage des Sioux, an early military outpost, and the City of St. Charles, Missouri's first state capitol. With only two miles separating the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers just to the north, Old Jamestown was also connected to Illinois locations. Today Old Jamestown has some subdivisions but development is limited because of the karst (sinkhole) topography.*Revision 1 changes are in a 5-page pdf file linked to www.oldjamestownassn.orgRoyalties for this book are donated to the Old Jamestown Association.
