About Brevet Brig. General Abraham Eustis, USA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abraham_Eustis

Abraham Eustis (March 26, 1786 – June 27, 1843) was a lawyer and notable U.S. Army officer, eventually rising to become a Brevet Brigadier General. He saw service in Florida and became a notable artillery specialist and the first commander of Fort Monroe, located at the entrance to the harbor of Hampton Roads in Virginia.

In the State of Florida, Eustis Lake and the town of Eustis were each named in his honor. Camp Abraham Eustis, a World War I-era U.S. Army base along the James River, was named for him. Later renamed Fort Eustis, in the 21st century, it is an expanded and active facility which now located in the independent city of Newport News, Virginia.

Abraham Eustis was born in Petersburg, Virginia. He was educated at Harvard College and Bowdoin College. He served during the War of 1812, in the Black Hawk War (1832), and in the Seminole Wars in Florida.

In 1830, Eustis became the first commander of Fort Monroe, which guards the entrance to Hampton Roads at Old Point Comfort in southeastern Virginia. There for many years, he commanded the school for Artillery Practice.

In May, 1838, Eustis took command of Fort Butler, the one of the main military posts built for the forced removal of the Cherokee known as the Trail of Tears. Nearly 5,000 Cherokee of North Carolina and adjacent Georgia were taken to Fort Butler, thence to the main internment camp at Fort Cass. The troops stationed at Fort Butler were those of Eustis's command from the Second Seminole War in Florida (Duncan 2003:190).

He was the father of Brig. Gen. Henry L. Eustis.

Fort Eustis

Fort Eustis was originally known as Camp Abraham Eustis when it was established during the World War I on historic Mulberry Island and an adjacent portion of the mainland along the James River in Warwick County, upstream from Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. It became Fort Eustis and a permanent Army base in 1923.

Fort Eustis is currently home to the U.S. Army Transportation Corps, and is now located within the corporate limits of the independent city of Newport News (which merged with the former Warwick County in 1958). An Army Aviation School is also located there. A large mothball fleet of ships known locally as the "Ghost Fleet" is located adjacently in the river.

As of 2007, with the pending base closure of Fort Monroe in nearby Hampton, a portion of the work there will shift to Fort Eustis. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
