Camp Meigs was the site of the training grounds for several colored regiments in the Massachusetts Infantry during the Civil War. Its best-known trainees were the 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry - put to film in the movie, "Glory."
The land has since been developed, but the park in the center is named the "Camp Meigs Memorial Park" and includes a placard that says such. Many of the original natural features can be recognized.
*Note, the film was not filmed in this location*
