Fort Adams
The United States Naval Academy relocated to Fort Adams during the early months of the Civil War. The fort housed the cadets and served as a training facility until more suitable quarters could be secured in the town of Newport. The fort also served as the home to USS Constitution ("Old Ironsides") and was used to house midshipmen and as a training vessel.
