A much beloved classic,
Elephants and Quaker Guns traces developments
in the Northern Virginia area from colonial times through the turn of the
century, concentrating on local legends and little known facts. It opens the
door to a long lost Northern Virginia laden with natural beauty and richness,
devoted to agriculture, timber, and trading.
The author enthusiastically details the Washington area's role as one of the
earliest homes of the American circus, traces the course and impact of the Civil
War on the region, uncovers the area's part in the writing of the ''Battle Hymn
of the Republic,'' and much more.
