Overview

This book tells the history of the house called Sully, built in 1793 by Richard Bland Lee and now owned and managed by Fairfax County, VA. Lee was the first Congressman of Northern Virginia, a key player in the Compromise of 1790 that established Washington DC as our capital, and the uncle of Robert E. Lee. The story traces the historical events that impacted the house and its inhabitants, including the Civil War when both armies camped on the property. A section of the book contains photos of the house, inside and out, with a commentary about the function of each room and building in the Federal period.
