Northwest D.C's neighborhoods were once filled with thousands of Union troops in and around the Civil War Defenses of Washington, and for a few days around July 11-12, 1864, attacking Rebel troops as well. This presentation, rich with maps and photos, will explain what happened here during the Civil War, with a particular focus on the stretch of fortifications from Fort Reno over to Fort Totten.
