Camp Allen
(Alameda County)
 
 
A Civil War-period post in Oakland, it had been established for the training of volunteers before they were sent east, chiefly to join Colonel Edward Dexter Baker's 71st Pennsylvania Regiment (1st California Regiment). Other men assigned to the camp found themselves serving monotonous guard duty at warehouses or on some of the islands in San Francisco Bay.
