After many years, I finally was able to visit this cemetery for the Confederates who died at Camp Chase, near Columbus, OH. All that is left are the graves in a section of western Columbus. So many men who died so far from home and so long ago.

This is a hidden gem in Columbus for any history buff. When you walk through the ate you can feel the history and to me it was almost like the soldiers buried there where trying to tell me their story. I wondered if any of their disant relatives had ever made the trek to pay them some respect. If you... More

Many people don't comprehend a confederate cemetery in Ohio. But yes, there was a prison in Columbus that they brought confederate prisoners to. Worth a stop if you are near here.

My brother loves anything to do with the Civil War. He loved visiting Camp Chase cemetery. Not a huge site, but definitely worth a look.

This Cemetery was very well kept. The staff were very well informed about the history of Camp Chase. It was steeped in history and you could feel the history that surrounds you. It was very interesting. It is well worth a visit.

Like all of the site. I took my grand-kids there as an educational visit. The Confederate Band was there and a roll call was given for deceased. All was professional.

This cemetery was established to entomb the Confederate soldiers that died while imprisoned at camp chase which was a prisoner of war camp run by the union army. There are several hundred soldiers and officers buried here. If you visit please show the respect they deserve. It is located on Sullivant ave near Hague.

This cemetery is close to the downtown area of Columbus, OH. It is well maintained but the ground is uneven so use care when walking around the grounds. Keep in mind there is no parking at the actual cemetery but it's easy to park nearby and walk. We walked down each row of headstones...each one marking the life of someone... More

I saw the cemetery on tripadvisor and thought I'd take a look. It's not that out of the way, but I did think I was in the wrong area. It doesn't feel like an area where this cemetery would be. It's pretty small, but very interesting if you're into history. The cemetery is free to visit, but there are "no... More
