[VA] Camp Casey /USCT

The Mystery of the Civil War’s Camp Casey

By Chelsea Gilmour

As much as Virginia loves its Civil War history – chronicling and commemorating almost every detail – Camp Casey isn’t one of the places that gets glorified or even remembered. Located somewhere in what’s now Arlington County, just miles from the White House and U.S. Capitol, Camp Casey was where regiments of African-American troops were trained to fight the Confederacy to end slavery.

While not the largest Union base for training U.S. Colored Troops (USCT), Camp Casey was one of the few located within the boundaries of a Confederate state. Yet, despite its historical significance, or perhaps because of it, Camp Casey has been largely lost to history.
