He is a hearty supporter of the King Street White Way, and is confident that Alexandria can become a great distributing center by cooperation and the adoption of modern methods. j HISTORIC JBRADDOCK CANNON. i 1 When Major General Edward Braddock, with George Washington as his aid de camp, left Alexandria in April, 1755, with a little army of regulars and provincials on his ill-fated expedition against the French and Indian allies, he left behind a number of cannon that were later planted, with muzzles' pointing skyward, at the entrances I to several of the principal alleys of i the city of Alexandria.
