The author was a trained historian as well as an architect and archaeologist. As such, he is a natural authority to cover the historical life in early Tidewater Maryland. The historical text is supplemented by over 580 photographs and drawings covering a vast array of subjects, including hundreds of items of furniture and artwork, house floor plans, forts, mansions, churches, gardens and more – basically everything you would have found in the early Tidewater area. A valuable reference work, as well as an informative and enjoyable volume about a great period in our national heritage.
