I have lived in Alexandria for many years and often drove right by Ft. Ward. This place offers some great insight into the role Alexandria played during the Civil War. We really enjoy the grounds and museum and take out of town guests here.

The personnel were very informative about the fort and the orientation film provided additional information. The fort is a simple structure of earthen works and various small buildings and cannon. It gave one a better idea how Washington DC was protected during the Civil War. A must see; and, it's free

This civil war photo is partially restored and is a great connection to the military history of the area.

This is a little piece of Civil War history, easily accessible by car. If you watch the schedule, you can catch demonstrations of artillery firing. The museum does a good job of telling the story of Alexandria during the period, and the gift shop includes books that give even more information.

This park is a nice place for a picnic.
It is not well maintained by the City however!
Can also be very loud at times!
