Camp Crescent City
Established 9 January 1856 during the Red Cap War by elements of the 4th Infantry out of Fort Humboldt. This camp in what is now Del Norte County was irregularly garrisoned until 1858. The Red Cap War which began in 1855 led to the removal of the Yuroks and seven other tribes to the Hoopa Valley Indian Reservation.
