David Franke’s review
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic, bringing in lots of background and context. My college-aged daughter and I really learned a lot about the life of all sorts of women during the Civil War in Alexandria. I highly recommend catching this tour during one of the remaining dates. Also, I hadn't watched Mercy Street before, and now my curiosity is piqued. A good complement to this is a day trip to Frederick and the excellent Civil War Medicine museum.
