Hampton, Virginia: Camp Hamilton

Visiting Waterfront Park, Phoebus, and the wayside for Camp Hamilton, where the 1st United States Colored Cavalry was organized in 1863. Some of my ancestors who fought for freedom mustered in here between 1863-1864. Kind of surprised that history isn’t included on the wayside.
