Welcome to Camp Douglas Restoration Foundation
To provide active leadership in the development, delivery, and preservation of educational and historic information regarding the Upper Midwest, especially Illinois and Chicago during the Civil War.
The Story of Camp Douglas, Chicago’s Forgotten Civil War Prison, by David L. Keller, published by History Press, was written from the 19th Century mind-set and 20/20 hind site. Camp life is told through the diaries, journals, and letters of prisoners from the camp.
For a limited time this book is available from the Store on this web site for $20 with no shipping and handling charges.
