It was a city with Southern sympathies continuously occupied by the Union Army and virtually operating as a Northern supply depot due to its transportation infrastructure and proximity to Washington, DC. 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.
