    Ward 5: Lincoln’s Cottage to Showy Shrines Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "It may be a scant 4 miles from the White House, but this largely verdant swathe of D.C. is spiritually distant from the hustle of downtown. It’s a sanctuary. President Lincoln sought solace in this then-rural area (now known as the city’s Ward 5 political district) during the bloodiest of all U.S. wars."
