Civil war bunkers, cannons, building and views! The perfect Civil war park without the crowds. Plenty of huge cannons to defend Washington on the Potomac river entry. Lots of cannon emplacements, interpretive signs, and real civil war bunkers! The ammo dump is currently off limits. There are great water views with a building by the water, and a short half mile hike to a view of the bridge crossing to Alexandria. This park is definitely a hidden jewel.Show more
