Old Camp Dau Site and Memorial

The Old Camp Dau Site and Memorial is located in the town of Mabalacat in the province of Pampanga. After Dau was proclaimed a barrio of Mabalacat in 1936, then Commonwealth President Manuel L. Quezon issued a decree to establish Camp Dau as the first artillery camp. 
Dau was once a forest where the hardwood Dau trees (Dracontomelon Dao), where it most likely got its name from, abound and then later on became the most populous town in Mabalacat. It served as an important location throughout its foundation, including an access and military road into Fort Stotsenburg and establishing a Post Exchange in the area. Consequently, Dau became the Philippines' post exchange capital.
Presently, the camp serves as a memorial site and mini-park for its historical role during those times and a way to commemorate the young Filipino patriots who trained on its very grounds.
