In the greens overlooking the Potomac river, between the 14th hole and the 15th tee at the Trump National Golf Club in Lowes Island, Northern Virginia, stands a stone pedestal with a flagpole and a plaque commemorating a forgotten piece of American Civil War history—the battle that turned the Potomac red with blood. The inscription reads:

Many great American soldiers, both of the North and South, died at this spot, “The Rapids”, on the Potomac River. The casualties were so great that the water would turn red and thus became known as “The River of Blood.

It is my great honor to have preserved this important portion of the Potomac River!  – Donald John Trump.

A touching tribute, except the battle the plaque attributes to never took place.
