Camp Allegheny  
200 Sycamore Street
Elkins, WV 26241

At an altitude of 4,400 feet, this camp established by Confederate forces in July 1861, was one of the highest of the Civil War. Because of its exposed conditions, winter at Camp Allegheny was extremely harsh on its occupants. The loss of men combined with the logistical nightmare of keeping the camp supplied contributed to the decision to abandon it in April of 1862.
