The Washington, DC Area Military

As capital of the United States, the federal district of Washington, D.C., became a significant civilian leadership, military headquarters, and logistics center during the American Civil War. Defending the capital became a major priority of the War Department, and often dictated military strategy.

In many ways, the war transformed Washington from a rather modest semi-rural city into the urban center of American federalism.
