Riﬂe Trench & Two Gun BatteryThe ridge that extends along the edge of the parking lot to the right where you are standing is the remains of a rifle trench built during the Civil War. This ridge, part of the Defenses of Washington, connected Ft. Totten to the north and Ft. Slemmer to the south. Fixed emplacements for artillery—known as batteries—were between the forts. One such battery is located at the end the ridge.
