Mayfield Heights, Ohio
We of the Ohio Division are
very proud of our Confederate Heritage. Three of our Camps are named
after Ohio born Confederate heroes. Ohio has a rich Civil War heritage.
Six of Ohioís sons became Confederate Generals. The war first came to
Ohio in 1862, when Confederate Colonel Albert Jenkins rode into Ohio on
a raid. General John Hunt Morgan then rode through Ohio in July of
1863, and brought the War into Ohio. He suffered defeat at Buffington
Island in Meigs County.
Ohio was also the final
destination for some Confederates at prison camps located at Camp
Chase and Johnsonís
Island. There are Confederate Cemeteries at each site. We hold
Memorial Services at each location. Ohio has many more Confederate sites
throughout the state. It is our Duty and Honor to help preserve these
sites and we invite everyone to come to share our Confederate Heritage
here in Ohio.
