Fort Ward, Arlington, VA

Immediately upon the declaration of hostilities at the advent of the Civil War, the Union ringed the Nation's Capital with some 164 forts. I stumbled on Ft. Ward today, with some help. It is a quaint, telling, and appropriate fact that of the 164 forts, only one managed to get into a fight: Ft. Stephens.
