Women of Alexandria, from Antebellum to the 20th Century
Wednesday, March 2 / 7pm at the Alexandria Black History Museum
Monday, March 7 / 7pm at the Athenaeum
Alexandria spent four years as an occupied city. During that time, daily life became quite different for residents who remained in the city, and in many cases, the war changed the course of women’s lives.
Women of Alexandria, from Antebellum to the 20th Century will illuminate an important side of the city’s history that we feel has been under-investigated: the effect of the Civil War on the lives of Alexandria’s women.
