Dr. Steven J. Shephard, a retired City archaeologist with Alexandria Archaeology, gave a lecture last night at the Lloyd House. His presentation was the most recent in a program titled, “Alexandria Civil War Sesquicentennial Lecture Series.”
Dr. Shephard led the archaeological dig at the Contrabands and Freedmen's Cemetery.
The Contraband Cemetery Park has seen delays due to supply problems at the quarry. A tentative date of September 6, 2014, will be announced next week for the Grand Opening.
