Buy the Book – Fort Lesley J. McNair

A Ground breaking milestone in military history!

Until now, little has been written about this US Army Post which has its origins after the US Revolutionary War.  In fact, it is believed that this is the first book of the 21st century about a place noted for many events, people and more that have had an impact on the United States and the world.   Researched and written by John Michael, the book reaches back to the 1790s when it was first built, then known as military reservation #05. With over 200 historic photographs, little-known illustrations, and maps, the pages take the reader through over two hundred years into 2015.  One of the smallest US Army Posts,  it is the third oldest post (West Point and Carlisle Barracks are older) in continuous operation in the United States.

From the US Army Engineers School to US Army Music School to the US Army War College … Learn about the impact of Major Walter Reed, the role of ironclad warships, President Lincoln’s assassination conspirators who were incarcerated, tried and hanged within the acres, US Army Band – “Pershing’s Own” and US Army 3d Infantry – “The Old Guard” Alpha Company – “The Commander-in-Chief’s Guard” with telling photos provide insights to the history of the only US Army fort within the Capital City still protecting the City of Washington DC over 200 years later.
