The Quartermaster Department was responsible for the transportation of the Army, storage and transportation of supplies, clothing, camp and garrison equipage, horses, forage, fuel, maintenance of buildings and repair of equipment.

Captain Edward J. Strang was in charge of the repair shops, located nearby, which employed more than 1,600 blacksmiths, wheelwrights, carpenters, saddlers, teamsters, laborers and clerks. These men were responsible for the maintenance and repair of army equipment. Quarters were built next to the repair shops to house Strang's employees.

Captain Strang's wharf was located below the intersection of Pecan Avenue and Water Street on the James River. The wharf extended along 190 feet of the waterfront and covered 26,344 sq. ft. A one story frame store house was constructed on the wharf.
