1992: TOM GLOVER'S NEVER ENDING SEARCH FOR CAMP OLDEN
Over the years, I have made it a goal to learn all I can about one of Hamilton Township's more historic contributions to American history. Camp Olden is, and has been the subject which I have been zealously chasing since 1991 when I came across a newspaper article regarding the Lawtons of Hamilton Avenue. More articles relating to Camp Olden can be found by using the SEARCH feature below the home page on this site, along with the INDEX (Lables) on the right side of this screen. Additionally the Camp Olden Civil War Roundtable was formed and you will meet and greet experts on the war between the states if you visit their website www.campolden.org. The article I wrote above was the catalyst that spurred former Mayor Jack Rafferty to establish "Camp Olden Park" at the triangular intersection of Hamilton and Liberty Street. It was also followed by the establishment of the Civil War Roundtable during the time of Vince Mercandetti's term as President.
