    Hidden History of Alexandria, DC Lecture @ Northern Virginia Fine Arts Association @ the Athenaeum

    This groundbreaking history uncovers a long-forgotten period in the 19th century when Alexandria left the Commonwealth of Virginia and became incorporated into 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. Tickets are $15 per person.
