Course Description

Chicago was once the site of one of the largest prison camps for Confederate soldiers. Located in what is now the Bronzeville neighborhood but in 1861 was the outskirts of the city, Camp Douglas served as a training site for Union soldiers, a prison camp Rebel soldiers, and —weirdly — a detention camp for Union soldiers captured by the Confederacy. Though long vanished now, it made its mark on the city in surprising ways.
