Fort Ward Ornament (2015)
The 2015 Historic Alexandria Holiday Ornament showcases Fort Ward Museum and Historic Site. Fort Ward offers an excellent introduction to the Civil War Defenses of Washington through exhibits, programs, and the preserved Union fort which features the authentically reconstructed Northwest bastion. The Museum is patterned after a Union Army headquarters building that existed in the defense system, imitating a board and batten style with decorative trim that was typical of the era. The Museum’s fine collection features more than 4,000 objects from the Civil War period, including items that interpret the Defenses of Washington, Civil War Alexandria, and military life at Fort Ward.
