Fort Stevens Historical Tour
This week, we take you on a tour of the Batteries at Fort Stevens and learn how the enemy targets were found, how the guns were aimed, and the steps taken to fire the guns. We also walk through the batteries to learn their history and some of the stories of the men that served here.
Much of the information, photos and videos used in this video came from the Costal Defense Study Group. They have information about forts all over the country, how they worked and declassified historical documentation. Very interesting stuff if you want to take a look:
