Alexandria, Virginia
April 2016
While visiting my cousin in the Northern Virginia suburbs of DC, we made an excursion to Alexandria. Besides walking the historic streets of the city, we took a tour of Christ Church. The significance of this building is that George Washington was a member of it as was Robert E Lee. You can sit in President Washington's seat which has also supported the butts of the last 20 US presidents (except President Obama as of yet) plus Winston Churchill. Talk about sitting on history!

Somehow I doubt that George Washington had a bust of himself looking out the window of his townhouse.
Walking the streets of Alexandria feel slike stepping back in time.
The Hotel Monaco is built on the site of the former Marshall House hotel. The first Union officer to die in the Civil War was killed there.
