Braddock Day

03/28/2015 10:00 AM to 03/28/2015 04:00 PM
Cost: Free ($1 Suggested Donation)
For a brief period in the spring of 1755, Carlyle House served as the headquarters for British military operations in North America. From March 26 through April 20, 1755 Major General Edward Braddock, the Commander-in-Chief of His Majesty’s Forces in North America, made Colonel John Carlyle’s elegant Alexandria mansion his headquarters. King George II had sent General Braddock to the colonies to oversee the escalating war with France. During his stay in Carlyle’s house, Braddock convened a congress with five colonial governors to outline his plan to oust the French from North America, as well as to seek funding from the colonies for their own defense. Afterwards, Colonel Carlyle described it as “the Grandest Congress … ever known on the Continent.” Alexandrians never forgot Braddock’s visit, and for many years afterward Colonel John Carlyle’s mansion was remembered as the “Braddock House.” Join us on Saturday, March 28th from 10am-4pm to step back in time to learn more about this historic visit. Meet General Braddock and enjoy the sights and sounds of the 18th-century! Costumed interpreters will be on site to answer your questions.

Life,does it require pollinators? What are they, anyway? For there to be fruit, there MUST be pollinators. Pollinating all the food plants we grow could never be accomplished by man. No, another source of help has been provided – POLLINATORS! Unfortunately, pollinators seem to be disappearing. The monarch butterfly population is perhaps 50% of what it used to be. Bees seem to be dying off. What is happening? Find out the answer to this mystery on our part lecture and part nature walk.
