In the Civil War the first camp of this name was at Wilmington Fair Grounds for the First and Second Delaware Regiments. The same name was given this site in September 1862 for a camp of Pennsylvania troops sent to guard powder mills. They were relieved by the Fourth Delaware Regiment the next month when the site was known briefly as Camp duPont then later as Camp Brandywine.
