A new historic marker has been installed in Burke to commemorate the important contributions of African Americans building the Orange and Alexandria Railroad. Research found that during the Civil War, many formerly enslaved persons braved work outside Union lines, were captured, and sent back into slavery. The marker was made possible by the tireless efforts of several appointees to the Fairfax County History Commission. Thank you for shining the light on what could have been a lost part of our community’s heritage!
