My interviewee Ms. Mills and her family were affected by the construction of Fort A.P. Hill. Her family lived on a farm which became part of the military base and they were forced to move from their home. This photo shows some of the original construction on the base in June 1942. Many civilians lost their homes and farm land to the government due to land use for the base.
