Event description

Description

Learn more about women’s roles during the Civil War in Alexandria, Virginia. Alexandria was in a unique position during the Civil War. It was a city with Southern sympathies continuously occupied by the Union Army and virtually operating as a Northern supply depot due to its proximity to Washington, DC and its transportation infrastructure. The women who remained in Alexandria and those who came during occupation experienced the War not as a battle but a day-to-day way of life. This tour will explore the stories of a diverse group of women and their experiences living in Civil War Alexandria.

This tour starts at The Lyceum in Old Town Alexandria, the nearest metro is King St-Old Town which serves the Yellow and Blue lines. Free parking during the tour is available at The Lyceum. The tour is about 1 mile long, will last about an hour and a half, and end at The Lyceum.
