This is a little known CW Battle, but in reality, a VERY important one. It saved a late attack on the US Capital, Washington, DC. The Museum, located in the Visitors Center, is awesome, with interactive capability. This CW Battlefield is located in Frederick, MD, and easily found, not far from the Interstate, with signage. The Volunteer and NPS staff is very informed and helpful. There's a wonderful Jr. Ranger program for all aged children. Touring the Battlefield is a bit difficult, as one must navigate Frederick city roads and traffic. However, the trails at the stops are great to wander. A small Eastern National Museum Store and NPS Passport Station ate located in the Visitors Center. Trivia fact: LEW WALLACE, author of BEN HUR, fought in this CW Battle.
