Did you hear the news?
The National Park Service just gained its 418th unit!
Camp Nelson in Kentucky was designated a National Monument under the Antiquities Act on October 26th. This is a Civil War Era site that served first as a Union supply depot and then as a training camp for African Americans who took refuge there to fight for their freedom.
This site already has a visitor center with a film and established infrastructure. You can learn more about the site and plan a visit here.
Sorry, no photos yet since I haven’t been. These were not taken in Kentucky 🙂
