Headquarters HillJohn Strode, a prominent Revolutionary War gun manufacturer, built his manor house, Fleetwood, in the late 1700s. Strode was a friend of President Thomas Jefferson, who often stayed here when traveling between Monticello and Washington, D.C. The mansion that gave the hill its name was greatly damaged by the war, finally collapsing in the late 1800s.
