Just west of the Jesup Blair House was "Falklands," home of President Lincoln's Postmaster General, Montgomery C. Blair, and "Silver Spring," home of his father, Francis Preston Blair. During the attack on Ft. Stevens, July 11 and 12, 1864, Confederate General Jubal Early had his Headquarters at the Blair Home, "Silver Spring." By accident or intent, "Falklands" burned during Early's withdrawal.
