    *Second Annual Athenaeum Civil War Authors Series*
    Three local Civil War authors. Three winter dates.

    Reporter Michael Pope from Virginia Public Radio returns to the Athenaeum to discuss pre-Civil War Alexandria.  His groundbreaking history uncovers a long-forgotten period in the 19th century when Alexandria was part of the fledgling District of Columbia. It was an experiment that failed after half a century of neglect and a growing animosity between North and South. However, it was a fascinating time when cannons were dragged onto city streets for political rallies, candidates plied their voters with liquor and devastating fires ravaged the city.
