Happy Hour & History Lecture

Please join members of the Fairlington Social Club (FSC) for an informative presentation entitled "A Historical Perspective of the 1847 Retrocession Act" on Thursday March 14, 2013 at the Arlington Central Library Auditorium located at 1015 North Quincy Street Arlington, Virginia 22201 from 7:00 PM until 9:00 PM.

This FSC "Happy Hour & History Lecture" event will begin at 5:00 PM at Carpool restaurant located at 4000 Fairfax Drive Arlington, Virginia 22203 for the quaffing of cold frosty beverages.

Look for the FSC table top signs.

After food & drinks, we will adjourn at 6:50 PM and walk over to the Arlington Central Library which is located just down the street from Carpool.

Historian and author Ron Beavers will discuss retrocession, the process whereby what is now Arlington left the District of Columbia and returned to Virginia.

Alexandria became part of the District of Columbia with the creation of the new Federal government and remained part of the District until 1847 at which time it was returned to Virgina.

Alexandria County was renamed Arlington County by the Virginia General Assembly in 1920.

For those FSC members not inclined to join us for happy hour at Carpool, please meet at 7:00 PM at the library for this free history lecture.
