To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the
Civil War, NCD CAMP will be visiting Ft.
Stevens in the District of Columbia. This was the closest the southern army
under Gen Early came to the nation’s capital.
President Abraham Lincoln visited the site during the battle. CAMP Board
member and author of several studies of forts,
Terry McGovern will be our host.
Following the tour we will continue our discussions with lunch at the
Radisson Hotel on Georgia Avenue
in Silver Spring, MD.
The restaurant is half way to the new National Museum of Health and
Medicine now located in Forest Glen.
In 2007, NCD CAMP visited the museum at its old site at
The Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
We have an opportunity to revisit this museum in its new location in
Forest Glen, Maryland
and see the changes. A guided tour has
been arranged. Current exhibits
include “Military Medicine: Challenges
and Innovations,” “Civil War collections” and “ The Human Body: Anatomy and Pathology
