Civil War Washington Navy Yard Tour
Saturday, December 7, 2019 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Join Ford's Edu at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy as we explore the Civil War Washington connections in the place where President Lincoln spent his final afternoon, the Washington Navy Yard. Lincoln spent many hours at the Navy Yard conversing with the Commandant and observing demonstrations of new weapons technology. On April 14, 1865, he toured the USS Montauk, an iron-clad vessel; during the investigation of the assassination, it served as the temporary holding cell for the conspirators.
