Event Details :

Membership must be valid through the event date to register. This free event is limited to 20 registrants.

On this National Park Service Ranger-guided tour,  you will see Fort Stevens, which was part of the extensive fortifications built around Washington D.C. during the American Civil War and recreated by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s. You will also see Battleground National Cemetery, where 41 Federal soldiers from the Battle of Fort Stevens are interred. Visitors will be in the shade when our guide talks.

The Civilian Conservation Corps was a voluntary public work relief program that operated from 1933 to 1942 in the United States for unemployed, unmarried men. Originally for young men ages 18–25, it was eventually expanded to ages 17–28.
