The 2nd & 11th Mississippi Infantry Regt's. (C.S.A.) camped here from Oct 1861 to Mar 1862. They named their camp in observance of the 6th North Carolina's Camp Fisher (1 Mile to the NW). The 6th N.C. was the first Reg't. to establish quarters in the Montclair area and named the site in honor of their fallen commander Col. Charles F. Fisher (KIA at ?First Manassas'). The extended camps formed part of a Confederate Division in the Dumfries area (Ref. 1861-62 Blockade of the Potomac River).
