Visit Fairfax: Civil War Sites
I wanted to let readers know that Visit Fairfax has just published an excellent brochure to attract Civil War tourism during the Sesquicentennial. The well-illustrated brochure provides a general timeline of events that occurred in Fairfax County from 1861-65, including the September 11, 1861 skirmish at Lewinsville. It also lists the multitude of Civil War-related sites in the county, from the well-known to the obscure. I look forward to exploring many of the sites around here that I have not yet visited, and encourage others to do the same.
