    A Question of Loyalties: Mount Welby During the War of 1812 (Political Systems)

    Oxon Cove Park has a rich history that includes the story of the Debutts, a British family that came to America in the late 1700s. The Debutts family finally settled on a hilltop overlooking the Potomac River that today is known as Oxon Cove Park. It is from this hilltop that Mrs. DeButts witnessed the British capture of Alexandria and the Burning of Washington. The family even found Congreve Rockets on this hill!
