Camp Chase Tour & Book Talk

Thursday, May 9 - 6:00 PM


Please join Columbus Historical Society and Central Ohio Civil War Round Table for a night to contemplate the history of Columbus’s own Civil War cemetery at Camp Chase. Hilltop Historical Society member Dick Hoffman and UNC-Wilmington History Professor Dr. Angela Zombek will share their insights on what led Columbus to have a Confederate cemetery and how it has been a part of Civil War memory through the years. Dr. Zombek will also be signing copies of her new book, Penitentiaries, Punishment, and Military Prisons: Familiar Responses to an Extraordinary Crisis during the American Civil War.

Special note: Attendees must bring their own lawn chair for seating.

 

The event is free, but registration is required.
