Fort Richardson’s Armament Did You Know?
By the fall of 1861, following the first battle of Bull Run, construction of Fort Richardson was complete and the fort became an operational unit of what would ultimately be a complex of 68 enclosed earthen forts protecting Washington against the Confederate forces arrayed against the Capital. The fort was garrisoned by a detachment of the 1st Connecticut Heavy Artillery Regiment, with a compliment of 13 field artillery pieces. Fort Richardson was also one of only five forts to include in its armament a 100-Pound Parrott Rifle which had the capability to fire a 100 pound shell up to 3,100 yards and an 80 pound projectile 7,810 yards. For more information on Fort Richardson and its armament and the ANCC Foundation’s efforts to publicize and memorialize Fort Richardson and other elements of the Club’s history, please click here .
