History of Leesburg, VA
Leesburg has a rich history that spans three centuries. In 1757, Leesburg was chosen as the location for the new Loudoun County Courthouse, and in 1813 the Town of Leesburg was officially established. Leesburg is located just a few miles from the Potomac River, which was the dividing line in the Civil War from the United States and the Confederates States of America. As a result, there were numerous battles fought here including the Battle of Balls Bluff. After the war ended, Leesburg had to recover from the scorched earth tactics that were commonly used. Leesburg’s location just outside of DC helped to speed their recovery, and the railroad allowed farmers to get their crops to larger cities. In the 20th century, Leesburg was the home of George C. Marshall, the man behind the Marshall Plan that helped to rebuild countries after WWII. Over the years, Leesburg has tried to retain its identity as a small, historic town although the rapid growth of Northern Virginia and Loudoun County have affected Leesburg to some extent.
