A couple of weeks ago, my wife and I took the boys to Old Town Alexandria. As we were headed back to the SUV, I stumbled upon another historic site related to the Civil War -- the birthplace of Brigadier General Montgomery Corse. Unless you stroll down Prince Street, away from all of the shops on King Street, you would completely miss the Corse house. I snapped a couple of photos and submitted the site to the Historical Marker Database. My photos, and a brief write-up, can be found here. The house is actually located a few hundred feet from the famous Confederate Monument on South Washington. (See previous post here.)

You can always count on finding another Civil War site in Northern Virginia, just when you thought you had seen them all.
