  • Strategically located at the juncture of the James River and Chesapeake Bay, Fort Monroe was built between 1819 and 1834 and was the first and largest of the coastal defense installations constructed following the War of 1812. The fort was positioned to protect Hampton Roads and the nearby port cities from attack. A number of significant Civil War battles began from Fort Monroe, under Union control throughout the war, most notably was the Peninsula Campaign of 1862.
  • Following World War II, Fort Monroe became the home to the Training And Doctrine Command, which combines the training of soldiers with the development of operational doctrine and the development and procurement of new weapons systems.
