Upcoming events on September 24th

Now over 150 years later we will honor the life of this hero with two important events, on Saturday, September 24, 2022.  Saint Charles City and County will recognize this hero Archer Alexander at 10 am in the morning in front of the OPO Startups at 119 South Main, where the courthouse stood in 1863. At 1 pm, that afternoon, his family invites the public to join them for a Memorial Service for this heroic man’s life, in the St. Peters UCC Cemetery at 2101 Lucas and Hunt Cemetery in St. Louis County (Normandy).


As one of our nation’s most awarded institutions, it is committed to sharing the stories, giving us a greater understanding, of our community, the people who live here, and those who have enriched our history.

Encyclopedia Virginia
