Potomac Yard: The Gateway Between the North and the South
by James E. Foley
Richmond Fredericksburg & Potomac Historical Society: “Pot
Yard” in Alexandria, VA was the connecting link for much traffic
between the north and south. A “casual” look at this important location is
contained in this group’s new 784 page book titled Potomac Yard – The Gateway Between the North & the
South. The pages are filled with text and maps describing almost all
activity related to that location. B&W photos illustrate the well researched
text. Priced at $69.95 it is THE book on that subject and should be of interest
to fans of all the roads that called Pot yard a destination.
Potomac yard was C&O's major Washington area terminal, where all its manifest freight was handled.
