For more information, see the City of Fairfax website (here). Historic Fairfax City, Inc. also provides event information (here). This year I plan to post more frequently about local Civil War events. With so much happening, I feel that these events sometimes escape people's attention. And as always, I'll report back with my impressions if I am able to attend.
