Volunteers Needed: 153rd Anniversary of the Battle of Fort Stevens

Volunteer to be a part of the 153rd Anniversary of the Battle of Fort Stevens. The National Park Service with the help of the Alliance to Preserve the Civil War Defenses of Washington is commemorating the anniversary of the Battle of Fort Stevens, which occurred on July 11-12, 1864. It was the only Civil War battle in the nation’s capital and the only time in the nation’s history that a sitting President (Lincoln) has come under direct enemy fire. Had the battle ended differently, the whole course of the Civil War and future of our country would have changed!

This year we continue to honor the battle with a commemoration event on Saturday, July 8, 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. To pull it off, we need the help of the community and volunteers. We can’t do it alone!

Please see the volunteer recruitment flyer for more information on how to volunteer, or visit our volunteer events page for information about our annual Special Volunteer Events.

Thank you all for joining us this past weekend along Rock Creek Parkway where we planted about 1500 pollinators that will grow into a beautiful garden! We were all so impressed that we were able to complete the planting in the hot conditions! Thanks again for your support.
