Battle of Fort Stevens 155th Anniversary Program is Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm

The annual program commemorating the Battle of Fort Stevens is this Saturday (7/13) from 10 am to 4 pm. Its a fun event and worth stopping by even if its only for a few hours (Check out their Facebook event page for details). Of particular interest, this year includes Cannon Firing events (Fort Stevens Field) scheduled for 12 pm and 2 pm.

This year’s theme focuses on the summer 1864 campaigns: Jubal Early’s Raid on Washington, the Federal pursuit of Early culminating in the Battle of Cool Springs, and the 1864 Valley Campaign.

Below is the draft program, which give a good idea of the types of events and scheduled times.
