A hub of U.S. military activity, Hampton Roads has been shaped in many ways, socially and culturally, by the daily military presence. During WWII while many Hampton Roads' residents were leaving their homes to go to military assignments, the area was growing with people coming from throughout the United States.  As the launching place for so many soldiers, sailors and airmen and the leaving place for so many families, Hampton Roads was a region filled with joy and sadness, excitement and fear, leaving indelible marks on the community.

Kingdom by the Sea explores the history, reviews the debate, and considers the future of Fort Monroe as the US army plans to vacate in 2011. Since the early 1600's, a series of fortifications have guarded the Hampton Roads waterways, but none lasted long until the impregnable Fort Monroe was built between 1819 and 1843. Referred to as the "Gibraltar of the Chesapeake" and "Freedoms Fortress," Fort Monroe has long stood as a symbol of American freedom and fortitude.
