Harpers Ferry in July 1865

Harpers Ferry and the Potomac River in 1865

This is really stretching it to be included as a GoDC post, but seeing as Harpers Ferry is quite close, and is a reasonable day trip from D.C., we’re going to include this photo. Plus, it’s a terrific photo and we want to share it with everyone. It was taken in July of 1865.
