The improvements to Ft. Ethan Allen are a welcome addition to the park, which currently suffers from a lack of sufficient interpretation when compared to other local sites like Ft. C.F. Smith in Arlington and Ft. Ward in Alexandria. Starting this fall, Ft. Ethan Allen will become an even more compelling destination in Northern Virginia for those interested in the defenses of Washington. I will be sure to keep readers informed as the project at Ft. Ethan Allen progresses throughout the year.
*One of the best parts of the report is the digital recreation of Ft. Ethan Allen and environs. (See p. 14.) I only wish I had such computer graphics skills!
