Tidewater by Steamboat: A Saga of the Chesapeake by Professor David C. Holly

The name Weems, and the Weems line, writes David C. Holly, symbolized nearly the entire epoch of the steamboat on the Chesapeake. The Weems line began in Baltimore in 1819, as steamboats first appeared on the Chesapeake and its rivers. It was sold to the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1905, at the height of the steamboats Golden Age, though its boats continued to serve the Bay until the 1930s. Illustrated with maps, drawings, and rare photographs, Tidewater by Steamboat is the vivid portrait of life on the Patuxent, the Potomac, and the Rappahannock, where Weems boats sailed and the course of the American republic was set.
