About this event

Sit in the shade of the Lee-Fendall garden and learn how the American Civil War impacted soldiers and civilians in Alexandria. During the war, African American refugees from slavery sought freedom in the city while Confederate sympathizers fled. Alexandria served as a major supply and staging area for the Union Army as well as a medical center.

Discover medical advancements and the use of plants to treat sick and wounded soldiers when Lee-Fendall House served as a Union hospital.

The tour is 1 hour and is $10 per person with a limit of 15 people. Members of Lee-Fendall House are free but must call or email to make a reservation (703) 548-1789 or contact@leefendallhouse.org.
