A bit of history on the naming of Camp DuPortail

Born in France where he was trained as an engineer in 1776, Louis Lebreque DuPortail (1743-1802) was hired by Benjamin Franklin and Silas Deane and commissioned to serve as a Colonel of Engineers in the Continental Army. In November of 1777 he was promoted to Brigadier General. In December of 1777 he helped to select the Valley Forge winter encampment site and was responsible for its fortification.

He returned to France in 1782. He resigned his commission in 1792. As the associates of Lafayette fell out of favor with the French Government, he returned to America in self-exile in 1794. Seriously ill he departed for his homeland in 1802, but died at sea.
