Fun Fact!: During the War of 1812, the Washington Navy Yard was important not only as a naval support facility, but was a vital strategic link in the defense of the capital city. As the British marched into Washington, holding the yard became impossible. Commodore Tingey, seeing the smoke from the burning Capitol, ordered the yard burned to prevent its capture by the enemy. Tingey’s own quarters (now the CNO’s quarters) and the Latrobe gate were spared from the flames.
