Originally, 2260 Confederate prisoners of war were buried at Camp Chase Cemetery. It is to these men,that made the ultimate sacrifice for the cause they believed in, and their honored memory, that I humbly dedicate these pages.
May we never forget them!

Boulder and Memorial Arch at Camp Chase Cemetery

    True to the South, they offered free from stain
    Courage and faith; vain faith and courage vain.
    For her they threw lands, honors, wealth away;
    And one more hope that was more prized than they.
    For her they languished in a foreign clime,
    Gray-haired with sorrow in their manhood's prime;
    Beheld each night their homes in fervered sleep,
    Each morning started from their dreams to weep;
    Till God, who saw them tried too sorely, gave
    The resting place they asked - an early grave.
    Oh, then,
    Forget all feuds, and shed one manly tear
    O'er Southern dust - for broken hearts lie here.
