Built in 1861 and named after Brigadier General Joseph Gilbert Totten, Chief of the Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Totten commanded the northeastern countryside of Washington, DC during the Civil War. Heavily armed with massive cannon that could hurl 100-pound projectiles several miles, Fort Totten halted the eastward advance of Confederate invaders inside Washington, DC during the Battle of Fort Stevens in July, 1864.
