Fort Washington (DZ03) located in Maryland along the Potomac River and is a massive fort that can only truly be appreciated in person. In 1809 it was the only defensive fort protecting Washington, DC and was used in both the war of 1812 and WWII.
Activation Date: January 14th, 2016
There was some discussion with another activator who had experience operating in the area of the park and suggested I contact the park for permission. I called and received permission.
After activating I walked around the fort and checked out the lighthouse. Other than a guy fishing, the place was deserted. This fort make an excellent place to have a picnic as they have tables near the water’s edge.
