Father’s Day Itinerary: The Historian

For a history buff, there is no better place to spend a few hours than the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. Take a self-guided tour to learn the story of care and healing among total destruction during the Civil War. Follow your visit with an easy hike at Monocacy National Battlefield where you can experience another important part of Civil War history, the “Battle that Saved Washington.” Refuel in historic Downtown Frederick with dinner and drinks at Brewer's Alley at the city's historic former city hall and opera house. You'll find the building's history on the walls throughout the building. With multiple stops on Maryland’s Civil War Trails, Frederick is full of fascinating history that dad will enjoy.
