Defending the federal capital of Washington

May, Janet, Verna, and I had a lovely outing today, a beautiful sunny fall day.

We visited Fort Ward, the fifth  largest installation within the extensive network of Union forts known as the Defenses of Washington, which was built to protect the Federal capital during the Civil War.

After walking around outside, we went inside to visit the museum. We found it very informative and interesting.

We then went to Shirlington for a delicious lunch of grilled cheese sandwiches at Cheesetique.
