Following the end of the Civil War in 1865, a time of great change and rebuilding came to northern Virginia. Devastated by four years of war and now with thousands of newly freed African American citizens, Prince William County’s Reconstruction was a long, contentious era. In honor of Juneteenth, learn the stories of people and events that reshaped our area in the years after the Civil War in the places where they happened on this day-long bus tour. Some walking will be involved. Lunch and transportation will be provided.
