Poll: Do you take pride in Alexandria being older than the United States?

Alexandria’s birthday celebration was this past weekend, and the annual holiday wouldn’t be complete without a somewhat petty post noting that the City of Alexandria predates the United States.

It was the city’s 273rd birthday, recognized as July 10, with the country’s more obscure 246th birthday being placed around July 4.

Celebrations had been planned for Saturday, July 8, but were delayed to Sunday, July 9, due to rain.
