    Event Details:The City of Alexandria, through its Department of Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities and Office of Historic Alexandria, will host a public presentation of a new history research report prepared on the history of Fort Ward Park. The recently completed draft report was prepared in support of the Fort Ward Park Management Plan, now being developed by Lardner Klein Associates and the Fort Ward Park and Museum Area Stakeholders Advisory Group. Authored by University of Mary Washington Professor Krystyn Moon, Finding The Fort: A History of an African American Neighborhood in Northern Virginia, 1860s - 1960s, the research project narrative discusses the early history of the area in and around Fort Ward Park, but focuses primarily on the heritage of African Americans in the Seminary area of Alexandria, from the Civil War period through the founding of the park.
