Route of the National Road

Congress, in 1805-1806, passed "An Act to Regulate the

Laying Out and Making a Road from Cumberland,

in the State of Maryland, to the State of Ohio."

The vision was to project the road through state capitals.

The road was extended beyond, through Indiana, and Illinois,

but was not completed as planned to Jefferson City, Missouri.
