Johnson Island - Archeological Dig

I had two Confederate ancestors who spent time in yankee prison camps - one at Point Lookout, another at Camp Morton. Below is a video discussing some information regarding Johnson Island, another POW camp for Confederate prisoners in Ohio.

You can watch the remainder of the videos about the archeological dig at Johnson Island here. Really quite fascinating.

Just think about how many people use the term "deadline" and never realize it's origins. Thankfully, if I cross a deadline today I won't be shot for it.
