|One of the lesser known battles of the Civil War, Monocacy also is one of the closest to
Washington, DC. It was fought on 9 July 1864 as part of the final Confederate invasion of the North. Although the battle was a Southern victory, it bought time for the Union to rush troops to the capital, and, yet again, Washington was saved!|
We will meet at the Gambrills Visitor Center before driving over to the main part of the battlefield, where we will go on a series of trails on either side of I-270 that together total about 5 miles in length. Afterward, we'll head into Frederick to have a late lunch for those so inclined.
|How to Get There:|
|Event Directions:||From the North, East, or West (Baltimore or Frederick) use I-70, take Exit 54 (Market Street), then turn south on Maryland Route 355. The Gambrill Mill Visitor Center is located one-tenth of a mile south of the Monocacy River bridge.|
From the South (Washington, DC) use I-270N, take Exit 26 (Urbana). Turn left onto Rt. 80 and proceed two-tenths of a mile to stop sign. Turn left onto Rt. 355 North. The Gambrill Mill Visitor Center is located 3.7 miles north on Rt. 355.
