Here on farmlands bordering the Monocacy River, the fate of the nation's capital was decided July 9, 1864, when Union troops confronted Confederate soldiers marching toward Washington. Though the Confederates won this battle on Northern soil, they lost an opportunity to attack the capital city while it was lightly defended.

This National Park System site preserves the Maryland countryside where this crucial engagement took place. Wayside exhibits interpreting the sequence of major events in the day-long battle are located at key sites. Further information about touring the historic landscape by car and foot is available in the visitor center.
