Amazon.com Review At the start of the Civil War, federal troops constructed a ring of defensive fortifications around Washington, D.C. The forts saw limited military action, but many historians credit their deterring presence with saving the U.S. capital from a Confederate takeover. If the city wasn't impregnable, it was pretty close. This helpful book provides a full description of these forts--many of which have since been destroyed by farmers and suburban development. Several remain, however, such as Ft. Foote, Ft. Stevens, Ft. Ward, and Ft. Marcy (which became semi-famous in 1993 as the place where former White House deputy counsel Vincent Foster shot himself). Civil War buffs won't want to miss visiting these lesser-known but significant sites--and they won't want to miss this book, either. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Review This is a very scholarly and beautifully made book that completely discusses all of the fortification defenses of Washington D.C. during our American Civil War.... Each individual fortification has a short history as to what has transpired from the day it was built up to today's protection by the United States National Park Service. These fortifications stand today as a real tribute to the ingenuity of the United States Army Engineers Corps in protecting Washington D.C. during our American Civil War. (The Lone Star ) This is a welcome contribution to the literature of the Civil War. . . . The thoroughness with which the authors treat the topic is truly impressive. . . . This volume is highly recommended for all libraries and individuals with an interest in the American Civil War. (American Reference Books Annual )
