History

City history

Alexandria was founded around a small, ancient Egyptian town c. 332 BC by Alexander the Great. It became an important center of Hellenistic civilization and remained the capital of Ptolemaic (Greek) Egypt and Roman and Byzantine Egypt for almost 1000 years, until the Muslim conquest of Egypt in AD 641, when a new capital was founded at Fustat (later absorbed into Cairo).

Hellenistic Alexandria was best known for the Lighthouse of Alexandria (Pharos), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World; its Great Library (the largest in the ancient world; now replaced by a modern one); and the Necropolis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages.

Support Energy Freedom!

Dear Congressmen,

Senator Joe Doe and Rep. Jogn Smith are standing up for everyday Americans and our nation’s future. They introduced S. 2170 and H.R. 4286 respectively, the American Energy Renaissance Act. Please support this important legislation.

For too long, bureaucrats and politicians have treated our energy security and our prosperity as bargaining chips for political gain. That’s wrong, and un-American.

The American Energy Renaissance Act frees America from ridiculous and harmful regulations and frees our markets.

This legislation will make energy affordable for American families struggling in the economy, help pay down our debt, and move us away from foreign oil.

I urge you to support this common sense legislation. Please co-sponsor it and advocate for its passage.

Sincerely,

Share this with your friends:
