The Dispatch's “Look Back” blog recently posted lots of trivia about a little-known cemetery in Columbus where thousands of Confederate soldiers are buried. Camp Chase was once a 160-acre prisoner-of-war camp for the thousands of Confederate troops the Union Army had captured during the Civil War, but all that is left now is the cemetery. Much of the land where Camp Chase was erected is now the community known as Westgate.
Check out their post — it’s pretty interesting!
