Fort Devens



Although initially, Fort Devens was established in 1917 as a training camp for World War I troops, today it is one of the most important camps of the U.S.A. and it has a total area of 9,400 acres. It is home to the RFTA (the Reserve Forces Training Area), which, according to the base's commander "provides training facilities and training support to enhance the readiness of reserve component units in the New England Area". The base is named after Civil War hero, Charles Devens, and it is located in Massachusetts, in Middlesex County. Also, it is very close to the towns of Shirley, Ayer and Harvard. According to the 2000 census, the population is of 250.
