2018 Spring Battlefield Ride
21 April 2018
The 2018 Spring Battlefield Ride will examine coast defenses of the Potomac River and Baltimore Harbor. We will visit Fort Washington and Fort Foote (which both had important roles in the Civil War) along the Potomac River before heading to Baltimore Harbor to look at Fort McHenry, Fort Howard, and Fort Armistead (which were also key sites during the War of 1812). This trip will be led by Mr. Terrance McGovern, an AHF member and expert on coast defenses. He will explain the defenses at these sites that range from the earthen colonial era to the concrete Endicott Period.
