Dwelling remains of Sibley tents and stove/furnace features were determined to be a domestic component of a Union army camp. The report provides important information about daily camp life through analyses of military material culture, structural data, faunal and parasitological remains, and historical information. Research also focuses on the social and spatial organization of the camp within the context of the Gloucester Point defenses.
