Overview

Fort Ward was a crucial part of the wide defensive system built around Washington during the Civil War. The fort stands in the swath of territory that Union troops captured from Virginia shortly after the state joined the Confederacy. Today, visitors can wander the gardens in the 40-acre park surrounding the fort, picnic and enjoy summer concerts in the amphitheater. Fort Ward itself has been almost fully restored. The museum contains much to interest children and Civil War buffs, from musical instruments to medical equipment.
