Established in 1858, Camp Floyd housed the largest concentration of U.S. troops then in the United State. The troops were sent to Utah to suppress a rumored Mormon rebellion, which never took place. Camp Floyd and the town of Fairfield grew to 7,000 inhabitants making it the third biggest city in the Utah Territory. The army was recalled back east in 1861 for the Civil War emergency.
