ALEXANDRIA VA HISTORY 2
Why study Alexandria history, or any community history? History does not just occur on national and international stages. History happens locally to globally. Indeed, just as the late Tip O’Neill, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, famously said “all politics is local,” one might say all history is local. All history occurs in local communities, no matter how momentous the outcomes for regions, nations and the world.
