Subject: Johnson's Island
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
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!
The currently place "mystery Items" found for identification on thier page at
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.
