CAMP DUPONT

First established May 1861. The Fourth Regiment Delaware Volunteer Infantry camped here June to October 1862, whence they moved to a camp on the same name near Kennett Pike. The remustered First Delaware Regiment camped here in early February 1864, following a 30-day furlough before returning to active service in Virginia. The camp was named to honor Rear Admiral Samuel F. DuPont.
