More great work from restoration technician Olga Kosenko. This page is from an Oct. 5, 1861 issue of Harper's which paints a vivid portrait of the Confederate fortifications on Munson's Hill and the Union forces arrayed against them in Bailey's Crossroads during the Civil War.

Munson's Hill was made famous by the Rebels use of Quaker Guns, or logs painted black to look like cannons. As this article details, though, Union men from Michigan also tried their hand at deception using 'a stove-pipe and a set of wagon wheels.' The article also discusses the soldiers delight in being in the vicinity of delicious cornfields and resentment caused by aggressive chickens.

Keep up the good work, Olga!

In addition to getting the Falls Church History Room ready to open, restoration technician Olga Kosenko has never stopped repairing damaged documents from the collection. Take a look at these before and after pics of this issue of the East Falls Church Sun from February 20th, 1936.

We're moving back in! It's going to be hard, but hopefully not this hard. These are pictures of the 1996 Porter-Brinkerhoff house move. The house was moved by Historic Falls Church Inc. from 200 East Broad Street to 303 East Broad Street. The move occurred on December 14th and you can see the Christmas decorations on the house.
