Fort A.P. Hill is a training and maneuver center belonging to the United States Army located near the town of Bowling Green, Virginia. The center focuses on arms training and is used by all branches of the US Armed Forces. It is named for Virginia native and Confederate Lieutenant General A. P. Hill.

In the spring of 1940, the War Plans Division of the Army General Staff developed a plan to raise a National army of four million men that would allow it to conduct simultaneous operations in both the Pacific and Europe theaters. In July 1940, a movement began to locate an area of approximately 60,000 acres (240 km2), independent of any post and lying somewhere between the Potomac River and the upper Chesapeake Bay.
