For ecp's blog entry on Thomas Jefferson's understanding of the ownership of the Potomac River see: http://marylandarchivist.blogspot.com/2015/06/who-owns-waters-of-potomac-river.html

Research on Maryland's claim to the whole of the Potomac River was begun by ecp at the request of the Honorable Joseph Curran, then Attorney General of Maryland, in the year 2000. A research web site was developed by ecp to be shared with and added to by serious scholars and lawyers addressing the question that was to come before the Supreme Court. It was meant to be dynamic and on-going, but that was not to be. Unfortunately the concept of a dynamic shared research web site was abandoned by the Maryland State Archives following Dr. Papenfuse's retirement. A static version of what was placed on the web site is available from the Maryland State Archives special collections, but it does not contain the research undertaken for the presentation to the Washington Map Society which is referenced above, and it fails to present all the virtual images that had been collected and referenced on the dynamic site.

For the static virtual research collection created to explore Maryland's claim to the whole of the Potomac River as of October 2013 see:
