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.

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. *** Peggy Kruse is not a historian or a professional writer but she became interested in Old Jamestown history in 2011 and in this book has compiled many of the fascinating facts and stories she came across in her research. Peggy grew up in north St. Louis and attended Cor Jesu Academy on The Hill in south St. Louis. She transitioned through several careers, including as secretary at the FAA Lambert Field Control Tower and as auditor and manager with the Defense Contract Audit Agency. After retirement in 1998, she volunteered for a variety of organizations, assisting them with accounting projects, government applications, and web sites. Peggy holds BSBA (Accounting) and Master of Accounting degrees from the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She and her husband, Ray, have two sons and four wonderful grandchildren. *** Royalties for this book will be donated to the Old Jamestown Association. *** NOTE: Page numbers in the Index should be reduced by '1' for correct number. This will be corrected for the next edition.
