The 151st Anniversary of the Battle of Fort Stevens
This past weekend marked the 151st anniversary of the Battle of Fort Stevens, the only Civil War Battle in Washington D.C. Fort Stevens is located in Brightwood, a short distance north on Georgia Avenue for anyone who hasn’t visited it. You can read more about it here.
I’ve also found the following presentation on camp life that was part of the 149th anniversary commemoration at Fort Stevens which you can watch below.
A short distance to the north of Fort Stevens is the Battleground National Cemetery, where forty soldiers who died in the Battle of Fort Stevens were buried on the evening of July 12. One additional soldier who fought in the battle was buried there in 1936.
