Former Civil War camp in Warren receives historical marker

Updated:

WARREN, Ohio- The former site of a Civil War camp in Warren is recognized as an official landmark in Ohio's history.

Warren G. Harding High School students played music from a century and a half ago as a historical marker was dedicated at the site of Camp Hutchins.

The camp served as a training base for union soldiers. Camp Hutchins shared the same location with the Trumbull County Fairgrounds and the present-day high school.

"It's a perfect teaching lesson in local history for high school classes," said Wendell Lauth, a member of the Civil War 150 Committee.

More than 800 soldiers trained for the 6th Ohio Volunteer Cavalry at this site beginning in 1861. They went on to engage Confederate forces 50 times, including the battle of Gettysburg.

The market is just one of other included in the Ohio Historical Society's 150th anniversary program.
