01346 - Magazine in Battery Rodgers; The defenses of Washington, Alexandria, VA [LC-DIG-cwpb-01346]

While forgotten today, Battery Rodgers was part of the perimeter defenses for Washington DC. Located in Alexandria Virginia, it served only as a deterrent and never saw combat.

Sold quickly after the war, today it is a residential neighborhood and only has a small plaque in a park to mark the spot.
