This Date in History

May 30, 1901: Beneath the spreading branches of green trees, upon the historic battlefield of Fort Stevens, a loyal company gathered to do honor to the memory of two score Union dead who sleep beneath the sod on which they fell in defense of flag and country. The little Battle Ground Cemetery is a beautiful spot, and a bit of brightness was added to the solid banks of green foliage there yesterday by several large American flags and battalion pennants.Cannon Fire at Fort Stevens(Image Courtesy Wayan Vota)
