“A small and personal park”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

Out of the mainstream but historically interesting ... and a lovely place to jog, walk, or just sit and meditate.

“Interesting Civil War history in Alexandria”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

I have lived in Alexandria for many years and often drove right by Ft. Ward. This place offers some great insight into the role Alexandria played during the Civil War. We really enjoy the grounds and museum and take out of town guests here.

“Hidden history”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

The personnel were very informative about the fort and the orientation film provided additional information. The fort is a simple structure of earthen works and various small buildings and cannon. It gave one a better idea how Washington DC was protected during the Civil War. A must see; and, it's free
