Christ Church in Alexandria During the Civil War

The next time you’re cruising around Alexandria, you need to swing by Christ Church. I hate to admit it, but prior to this photograph, I was not familiar with the church. Now, I will be heading down there to check it out. It’s probably safe to say that they were unaware of Ghosts of DC … until now. Maybe the Sunday sermon will mention GoDC.
