On Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 7:30 p.m., Burke Historical Society President, Jon Vrana and Mary Lipsey, President, Fairfax County Cemetery Preservation Society, will present the exciting Civil War Forum, "The Christmas Raid of 1862".

That night, a small contingency rode to the wooden trestle railroad bridge over Accotink Creek with the goal of burning the bridge and disrupting communications and transportation of the U.S. Military Railroad.
