New London, Virginia

New London is an unincorporated community in Caroline County, in the U.S. state of Virginia. It lies within Fort A. P. Hill, 6 miles north-northeast of Bowling Green, Virginia.

In consequence of the American Revolutionary War, stores of ordnance, arms, and military stores accumulated at New London, Virginia.[1] New London lacked navigable waterways and hence good communications; messages and cargoes then primarily traveled via ship between ports. New London nevertheless continued as an Army installation for many years.
