July 12, 1864, Jubal Early's skirmishers observed the Greek Cross corps badge of the Army of the Potomac's VI Corps on the defenders of Fort Stevens, making it evident that reenforcements had indeed arrived from Grant's army at Petersburg, fulfilling one of Early's objectives to draw troops from the assault there on Lee's army. Satisfied, Early withdrew with the comment that although they had failed to capture Washington ( which likely could never have been held for long in the face of a Union response ), they had "scared Abe Lincoln like Hell." #travel #wanderlust #culturatourism #backyardtourism #culturaltourismdc #creative #discover #travel #ig_photooftheday #igdc #acreativedc #thedistrict #dcarts #dcfocused #districtofcolumbia #dcist #dcitystyle #design #civilwar #battlefield #americancivilwar #outdoors #outside #wegramthistown #bythings #visitdc #walk #mydccool #exploredc #igersofdc #dcculture
