960 Winter 2020 Mystery of the Centreville Six
Monday, 2:15-3:40, Feb. 3
United Christian Parish
Instructor: Jim Lewis

This fascinating local story has roots dating back to the one of the earliest confrontations in the American Civil War. A local relic hunter 133 years later came across the skeletal remains of a Civil War soldier in what is today a well-known fast food restaurant’s parking lot. Excavation and exhumation eventually took place, led by a team of archeologists and forensic anthropologists from Fairfax County and the Smithsonian Institution. What they found surprised everyone. Forensic analysis, followed by a five-year painstaking research effort, finally brought a fitting closure for everyone. Lewis was the project manager and author of the resultant Civil War Trails historical marker.
