My ancestor, Jonathan C. Caudill, was imprisoned and died at Fort Monroe during the Civil War. He was with the 22nd North Carolina Infantry in Company F.
Since my ancestors played a part in the history of Fortress Monroe,I’m looking forward to visiting in May 2016. I’m reviewing my DAR and other family records so I have the facts correctly positioned. Hope to see everything soon.
My father was stationed at Fort Monroe in 1944 before being shipped to Europe. My mother and sister lived there with him during that period, and I was born in the Army Hospital there in August, 1944. I would be interested to know where the hospital was/is located.
I visited Fort Monroe several years ago with my wife, and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It is truly a national treasure, and should be preserved as such.
