Go behind the scenes and learn about the true story of the nurses, doctors, soldiers and Alexandrians who star in PBS's new series Mercy Street. The program will begin in one of the original lobbies of the famous hospital, normally closed to the public, with coffee, bagels and a presentation lead by Sarah Coster, curator of the exhibit Nurses, Soldiers, Spies: The Mansion House Hospital, and Audrey Davis, historical consultant for Mercy Street and Director of the Alexandria Black History Museum. Then, join us for tours of the Carlyle House, the Green family's stately Southern mansion, whose history goes back to the 1740s.
