275th Anniversary of Fairfax County, Virginia

     I had the distinct pleasure and honor to celebrate the 275th anniversary of Fairfax County, Virginia with friends in the Alexandria Assembly who dance weekly at Gadsby's Tavern and Museum.  I also saw the Spanish Lousiana Regiment, 1st Virginia Regiment, the 84th Royal Highland Emmigrants, Lady Washington of Mount Vernon, and those of Gunston Hall.  

     Our group did dance demonstration and invited the public to also dance.  While hot and humid, it was a fun day honoring a wonderful county!  The real Lord and Lady Fairfax from England were also there!
