Breaking News

FREDERICK, Md. The Civil War "battle that saved Washington" is getting a fresh interpretation.

The National Park Service is breaking ground today for a new visitor center at the Monocacy (mah-NAH'-kah-see) National Battlefield just south of Frederick, Maryland.

The three-point-five (m) million-dollar structure on state Route 355 will house a museum shop and exhibits designed to better explain the clash to the 17-hundred people who visit the site on the banks of the Monocacy River annually.
