The Southeast Hills Had The Navy's Back, Once

Fort Davis, which protected the Benning and Navy Yard bridges during the Civil War, is one of the historic Naylor-Dupont district's most distinguished features.  At its highest point (somewhere along affluent Westover Drive), it is 303 feet above tide and well worth having a look at, if you're passing through the Southeast Hills area.
