The Monocacy National Battlefield Foundation (MNBF) is pleased to sponsor a historical bus tour of the battles that saved Washington of 1864 as a prelude to the 160th Anniversaries of the Battle of Monocacy (July 9, 1864) and the Battle of Fort Stevens (July 10-11, 1864). Our tour guides are: Ranger Matt Borders of the Monocacy National Battlefield; and Gary Thompson, President of the Alliance for Preservation of Civil War Defenses of Washington; and Charley Mitchell, author and faculty of the University of Maryland. Board a tour bus at the Frederick Visitors Center and join us as we trace the steps of Jubal Early’s Maryland campaign starting at Monocacy Junction (Monocacy National Battlefield) then onto to Fort Stevens with stops in between at Urbana, Rockville and Silver Spring.

Stay tuned for more details in the weeks to come.
