Ft. Ward was one of 43 forts in the Washington area protecting our nation's capital during the Civil War. It is one of the few forts that have survived to this day with any degree of preservation. Stop by the small museum which provides an excellent history and description of the "defense of Washington" structure and strategies, with lots of memorabilia.
During the summer, there are re-enactments, demonstrations, concerts and lectures. Check the schedule.
