"Occupied City: Life in Civil War Alexandria" examines life in an American town, seized and held by its own Federal government, following Virginia's decision to secede from the Union in May 1861. See how Robert E. Lee’s hometown of Alexandria was transformed literally overnight from a prosperous, bustling commercial port into a supply, hospital, and transportation center for the Union Army, and find out why Alexandria became a destination for African Americans seeking freedom.
