My wife and I had been planning an overnight trip to Virginia horse country (also known as "Mosby's Confederacy") this weekend, but she is getting a bit uncomfortable with the pregnancy. We opted instead to make a day trip to Old Town Alexandria. We used to live nearby, so finding an unexplored site can be a bit of a challenge. I examined my guide to Civil War Alexandria and before long found something that I had not yet visited, and that was a perfect fit for the Memorial Day weekend. So, before hitting the stores along King Street, we headed to Alexandria National Cemetery, hidden on Wilkes Street, away from the main commercial strip and the bustle of the weekend crowds.
