Theodore ( Ted ) Alexander

      It is with deepest sympathy to report the passing of Theodore (Ted) Alexander. Ted was frequently a speaker for the Middle-burg/Mason-Dixon Historical Society Inc. over the past years. His presentations were ones that shared the impact of the events of the Civil War on the citizens of Middleburg, MD and State Line, PA. The events of 1862, 1863, and 1864 happened on our front door. Whether the Confederate Troops or the Union Army was involved, Ted told the story of "When War Passed This Way", the title of the book he and W. P. Conrad wrote in 1982. His pre-sentations to the Historical Society were additional in depth accounts of the effect that these events had on the lives of the citizens who lived on the Mason-Dixon Line. His ability to tell a story and document the events of the Civil War stand alone in their excellence. Teds voice will be sorely missed in this ongoing narrative.
