Quick Overview

Created to connect east to west, the National Road was the only road ever built directly by the federal government. Trace its history as the Cumberland Road, stretching from within the state of Maryland to the Ohio River. Follow its extension across the Midwest to Illinois where political disputes and lack of funds stopped it. See how the arrival of the railroad slowed traffic on this road and then how the advent of the automobile brought it back to life again. cob9106t
