Fairfax County Sesquicentennial Site
Fairfax County has assembled a useful website for the Sesquicentennial. Here, you can find information on a multitude of Fairfax County and Greater Capital Region Civil War sites, including the Civil War Interpretative Center at Historic Blenheim and the Ox Hill Battlefield Park. The number of places to visit is truly overwhelming, even to a county resident like me! The website provides details on various organized tours, as well as proposed itineraries and an events calendar. The site also links to the Fairfax County Civil War eNewsletters that are published each month. This is an extremely useful website for both locals and visitors. I would urge readers to take a look and see what is out there to discover in a county so rich in Civil War history.
