Today is Alexandria’s Spring2Action day, and we are all encouraged to support local non-proifits organizations. This year the Office of Historic Alexandria has selected the Friends of Alexandria Archaeology (FOAA) in their effort to fundraise for the preservation of the 18th-century wooden ship recently discovered at 220 South Union Street.
