To explore the history of the Battle of Bladensburg, we recommend walking our biking the remains of the battlefield. With modern development, there isn’t much left of the landscape. However, the first and third line do have remnants that evoke the landscape of the time.
The route was marked from the end of the Bladensburg Waterfront Park pedestrian bridge with small white stars painted along the route, however, many of these stars have been worn away over the last few years. Efforts in late 2018 will be made to renew these markings.
Starting from the Waterfront Park, use this PDF version or pick up your own copy at the Visitors Center.
