“Life in a War Zone” Brochure
Heritage Montgomery has published a 32-page brochure, “Life in a War Zone: A Guide to the Civil War in Montgomery County, Maryland,” guiding visitors to heritage sites in the county with stories of Civil War significance.
From Poolesville to Rockville to Sandy Spring, learn more about how county residents’ lives were affected by constant troop movement throughout the area, as well as federal occupation, during the Civil War years. Walk along the Potomac River at Edward’s Ferry, where gas-fired balloons were once used to scout Confederate activity across the Potomac in Loudoun County; visit the majestic Monocacy Aqueduct, part of the vital supply route of the C&O Canal; or hike the Underground Railroad Experience Trail at Woodlawn Manor in Sandy Spring.
