Civil Brochure: Life in a War Zone: A Guide to the Civil War in Montgomery County
Heritage Montgomery has published a 32-page booklet, Life in a War Zone: A Guide to the Civil War in Montgomery County, Maryland, guiding visitors to heritage sights 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. Imagine gas-fired balloons floating near Edward's Ferry, scouting Confederate activity across the Potomac in Loudoun County; visit the majestic Monocacy Aqueduct along the vital supply route of the C&O Canal; or hike the Underground Railroad Experience Trail at Woodlawn Manor in Sandy Spring.
