The Arlington Department of Parks and Recreation on July 10 will host upcoming walking tours of the area around the remnants of two Civil War forts in the county.

A walking tour of Fort C.F. Smith Park will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. The fort was among the last of the ring forts constructed during the war; the tour will include the fort’s role and the lives of soldiers stationed there.

A walking tour of Fort Scott Park will be held from 2 to 2:45 p.m. The fort was constructed by the Union Army in 1861; with commanding views of the Four Mile Run Valley, it protected approaches to the District of Columbia from the South.

Both events are free; to register, see the Department of Parks and Recreation portion of the county government’s Website at https://arlingtonva.us.
