Subject: Johnson's Island

Message Detail:

Although not directly related to the Signal Corps, the Confederate Secrete Service page by John W. Headley
at "www.civilwarsignals.org/pages/spy/confedsecret/confedsecret.html" left me wanting to visit the Johnson's Island prison in Ohio.

This past weekend a pilgrimage was made by myself, my wife, Mark Williams and Helen Franklin to the Ohio Amish Country (Kinfron, Ohio)and then to Johnson's Island to see what discoveries could be made.- Awsome trip by the way.

More info on Johnson's Island can be found at
"www2.heidelberg.edu/johnsonsisland/" (link below as well)

The purpose of my post is not only to direct attention to the happenings and preservation of Johnson's Island Prison site/cemetery but to its current on-going Archaelogical Dig at that site!
"www.archaeology.org/interactive/johnsonsisland/"

The currently place "mystery Items" found for identification on thier page at
"www.archaeology.org/interactive/johnsonsisland/?page_id=18"

Perhaps some of our site visitors could lend som expertise to the identity of some.

one thing I found interesting is the amount of jewerly that was found made by the prioners held there.
