History of Fort Stevens
During my research for our guided tour video, I was amazed by the history of Fort Stevens and decided to make a historical summary. After way too many hours of research, finding photos and editing, this 3 1/2 minute video is the result!
For more information about Fort Stevens, watch our two other videos – a Historical Tour of Fort Stevens where we talk about how the guns were fired, tour the batteries and talk about their history, and Stories of Battery Russell where we talk about its unique history as the first mainland military installation to be attacked since the war of 1812.
