Dear Ms. Kirkpatrick,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located De Tocqueville's America in Record Group (RG) 263, Records of the Central Intelligence Agency, 1894 - 2002 from the series Moving Images Relating to Intelligence and International Relations, 1947 - 1984. This is a documentary film on Alexis De Torcqueville. For more information, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Motion Pictures (RDSM) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSM. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We also located the Images of America after the Revolution: Alexis de Tocqueville and Gustave de Beaumont Visit the Early Republic written by James T. Schleifer in 1977 that is a scholarly journal article in JSTOR and may contain the information you seek. Since viewing the article online requires a subscription, we suggest that you visit a local public or university library to obtain free access to JSTOR.
Although we were unable to locate specific information to indicate the locations where De Tocqueville and De Beaumont stayed, we did locate some information on hotels in Washington, D.C. that existed during that time frame, such as Brown's Indian Queen Hotel, Washington City North side of Pennsylvania Avenue about midway between the Capitol and the President's House, a few doors east of the Centre Market which is a lithograph from the Library of Congress’ (LOC) website. The website Streets of Washington provides additional information on the hotels in the area during the Andrew Jackson era.
Finally, we suggest that you check the Library of Congress (LOC) Chronicling America for possible news articles relating to Alexis De Torcqueville and Gustave De Beaumont as it has digitized newspaper articles from 1690 to present.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
