Morgan's Raiders, prisoners at Camp Douglas, 1863

Camp Douglas Restoration

with David Keller

David Keller is managing director of the Camp Douglas Restoration Foundation.

His interest in Camp Douglas stems from his curiosity about the Civil War,

Civil War Prison Camps, and 19th century Chicago history.

Camp Douglas in Chicago was a Union Army prisoner-of-war camp for Confederate soldiers taken prisoner during the American Civil War. Based south of the city on the prairie, it was also used as a training and detention camp for Union soldiers.
