Camp Logan was an army camp during the first world war and it is now a memorial site. Black soldiers as well as white soldiers were being trained here. They needed to be trained for World War 1. Black soldiers were usually harassed during their breaks by the white soldiers. They eventually got fed up and that's what led to the riot of 1917 that even to this day, not many people are aware of. It was the first race riot caused by colored people, however, not the first race riot alone.
