This staging and training area was established in the summer of 1861 by Benjamin J. Hill, who organized and commanded here the 35th Tenn. Infantry, CSA, until his promotion to Brigadier General. Discontinued for a time, the camp was reactivated in 1862 by Col. Marcus J. Wright, who was promoted to Brigadier General while here. The camp was then used mainly as a center for Confederate conscripts, but the 9th Texas and 20th Alabama Infantry Regiments were here briefly.
