Way back, the place was known as Edward’s ferry. It has been a witness to many significant acts in American history. In the year 1814, in August, when the British burned Washington, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were sent to safety near the Rokeby Plantation, at the south of Leesburg. And at the Edward’s Ferry, patrols of American soldiers and military from Virginia kept on guard against the threat of the British. Some artifacts of the patrols can still be found in nearby areas.
By the year 1861, Edward’s Ferry was a witness for the outbreak of war between the North and the South. After the victory of the South at the Battle of First Manassas, both sides settled at the banks of the Potomac River. The Battle of Ball’s Bluff, a major confederate victory, was fought in October 1861 and the major operations were done at the Edward’s Ferry.
