Costco to Host Book Signing for Local Centreville and Chantilly Author

Mary Stachyra Lopez will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

CHANTILLY, Va. - July 22, 2014 - PRLog -- Centreville and Chantilly are located 25 miles west of Washington, DC, and both share rich Civil War histories. Centreville overcame occupation by two armies during the Civil War. Four Chimney House, the home of a prominent Centreville businessman, first became the headquarters of Union general Irvin McDowell, then the headquarters of Confederate general Joseph E. Johnston. Johnston also used the Mount Gilead home, which is still standing, as his personal residence. In Chantilly, after the Second Battle of Bull Run, Confederate forces led by Stonewall Jackson clashed with Union troops at the Battle of Chantilly (also known as Ox Hill), where Union generals Philip Kearny and Isaac Stevens met their deaths.

Centreville and Chantilly shares with readers the stories and photographs of two communities that greatly respect their past and embrace their change. Today, Centreville’s agricultural heritage lives on alongside modern-day entrepreneurialism at Cox Farms, while Chantilly is home to the National Air and Space Museum’s Udvar-Hazy Center and Dulles International Airport.

Highlights of Centreville and Chantilly include:

·         A portion of the profits will be donated to the Friends of Historic Centreville, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving Centreville’s heritage.

·         The images come from the Library of Congress, the Virginia Room at the Fairfax County Public Library, and contributions from local residents.

·         Centreville overcame occupation by two armies during the Civil War.
