Fairfax Courthouse

this is the old Fairfax courthouse, near George Mason University, about 10 minutes from our house. This was one of the sites of the first conflicts in the Civil War. 

This monument is in front of the courthouse, for John Quincy Marr, who was the first confederate soldier to be killed by a Union soldier in the battle of the Fairfax Courthouse (800 feet from this spot). This is all right near old downtown Fairfax.
