The Civil War

by crkinane

The National Park Service recently released a new website dedicated to telling the Civil War story.

Fort Stevens is the only part of CWDW that seems to have made it on the “places to visit” list.  The blurb about Stevens only focuses on the history of the site in connection with the war years – only barely mentioning the CCC reconstruction (and by barely I mean describing it in the first paragraph as “partially reconstructed.”)

The website has an interesting page of themes (in the ‘Stories’ section), one of which is “Civil War to Civil Rights.”   Under that theme they discuss the Contraband history of CWDW!  Although the article doesn’t mention CWDW by name, Battery Carroll and Fort Greble do get an honorable mention.
