The Lee-Fendall House will offer “Beyond the Battlefield,” a guided walking tour of Civil War sites in Historic Old Town. Participants will see locations and stories associated with soldiers, citizens, and the enslaved, including the occupation of Alexandria and emancipation. Stops on the tour will include locations featured in the PBS drama, “Mercy Street."
The tour will last approximately 2.5 hours and the tour route is approximately 1.75 miles, so participants are encouraged to dress for the weather, wear comfortable shoes and bring bottled water. Tickets are $15 in advance or $20 the day of the tour. Tour space is limited, so the purchase of tickets in advance is highly recommended. The tour is free for members of the Lee-Fendall House Museum, but please reserve a ticket so we have an accurate count of attendees.
Finally, please note that the Lyceum parking lot is not available for attendees of this program, but there is ample street parking as well as the Courthouse Square garage a short walk away.
