Civil War Sites
The American Civil War descended upon the town of Hampton with a blaze of historic firsts. Hampton’s location near Fort Monroe placed it in harm’s way at the war’s onset and resulted in its destruction. Nevertheless, the forts and buildings that did survive are witnesses to the great changes that the Civil War and Reconstruction brought to our nation. There are 14 sites in Hampton on the Virginia Civil War Trails.
