Camp Sumner

 
A Civil War rendezvous for mustering troops and observing Secessionist activities, Camp Sumner was established late in 1861 on grounds adjacent to the Presidio of San Francisco for elements of the California Volunteers, and for a short time the 9th Infantry. The camp, functioning until sometime in 1865, was named in honor of the Department of the Pacific commander, E. V. Sumner
