I don't know if you are interested in more than Civil War camps, but there was one in Stewartstown during the second World War.Some of the prisoners helped with the picking of fruit in season and became integrated in the community.

We really think that these camps were also used during WW2 to house non-Christains, and non-whites too! We aplaud this because we (Kelly) and I, think any non-Christains and foreigners should leave our neighborhoods, and go back to where they come from!
