Historic California Posts, Camps, Stations and Airfields
Camp Grant
Camp Grant was established in October 1863 by Captain John Y. Simpson with Company E of the 1st Battalion of Mountaineers, California Volunteers. Abeloe's revision of Historic Spots in California, page 100, placed Camp Grant "on the Eel River, 3 miles east of Dyerville." Simpson and his troops captured 166 Indian hostiles, whom he placed on the Round Valley Resevation in 1864. Company E was mustered out at Fort Humholdt on June 14, 1865, apparently not long after Camp Grant was abandoned.
