Camp Meigs

Camp Meigs


Readville, Massachusetts (MA), US
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*
