Camp Floyd and the Utah War was used as a strategy by both the Northern and Southern states to divert the nation's attention from states rights and slavery issues. 3500 Union troops, about 1/3 of the entire U.S. Army was dispatched to Utah to suppress a rumored rebellion. President James Buchanan believed restoring order to Utah would unite the Democrats and Republicans and the Northerners and Southerners. John Floyd was the Secretary of War . He and other southern Democrats intended to divert Union troops to the West, deplete the U.S. Treasury by millions of dollars by giving out government contract for the move to southern businessmen, and encourage western support for southern stats rights. Camp Floyd was built in 1858 Fairfield, Utah. The army was recalled in 1861 for the Civil War. There was never a rebellion nor war in Utah.
