In first use of Antiquities Act power, Trump proclaims Kentucky’s Civil War-era Camp Nelson a NMon

President Trump created a national monument to protect a Civil War camp in Kentucky on Friday, designating his first national monument as president.


Camp Nelson, in central Kentucky’s Nicholasville, was a supply depot and hospital for the Union Army during the 1860s, and later served as a major recruiting center for African American troops, as well as a refuge for freed slaves. The Obama administration made it a National Historic Landmark District in 2013.
