Fort Ward Museum
Fort Ward is a former Union Army installation now located in Alexandria, Virginia. It was the fifth largest fort built to defend Washington, D.C. in the American Civil War. The fort is now a part of the City of Alexandria's 45-acre Fort Ward Museum and Historic Site adjacent to Braddock Road. The museum offers rotating exhibits on American Civil War subjects and a Civil War library. It also hosts Civil War and Revolutionary War reenactments. The historic area now includes a museum, an Officer’s Hut, Ceremonial Gate, and reconstructed northwest bastion.
