Civil War

(U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Deonte Rowell)  Maj. Gen. Trevor J. Brendenkamp, Commanding General of Joint Task Force-National Capital Region and U.S. Army Military District of Washington, led a ceremony at the U.S. Army’s Fort A.P. Hill, Va., to redesignate the installation as Fort Walker, in honor of the Civil War-era Medal of Honor recipient Dr. Mary E. Walker, Aug. 25, 2023. Fort Walker is one of nine installations the Army renamed to pay tribute to celebrate the courage, sacrifice, and diversity of its Soldiers and civilians, past and present. The final designation of Fort Walker resulted from many months of close consultation and discussion with stakeholders, the Naming Commission, Fort A.P. Hill Soldiers and leaders, as well as the surrounding community. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Deonte Rowell)
