Bladensburg Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 7 photos

<p>Bladensburg, tho not much to look at these days, was the site of a battle back during the War of 1812. The battle is often called the Bladensburg Races, since the US troops ran from the invading British. Maybe they just wanted to get some steamed crabs from the Chesapeake Bay!

Bladensburg also has the Peace Cross monument and was a site that flooded on a regular basis when the Anacostia river would spill its banks. My late father in law was the Mayor who was able to get federal funds to put in a flood control program. Now you can drive around this spot and not worry about flooding your car engine.You can read about the town at the website. Bladensburg Make sure to look at the photos of the historic buildings(Historic Sites on the webpage).
