*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.
