In 1918 the Chief of Field Artillery, General William J. Snow, seeking an area having suitable terrain, adequate water, rail facilities, and a climate for year round training, decided that the area now known as Fort Bragg met all of the desired criteria. Consequently, Camp Bragg came into existence on 4 September 1918. Camp Bragg was named for a native North Carolinian, General Braxton Bragg.
