Monty Chase talked about the history of Camp Chase, which was named for his ancestor, Salmon P. Chase. It was used during the Civil War as a Union training ground and a Confederate prison camp. Starting in 1895 the deteriorated cemetery began to be restored by former Union Colonel William H. Knauss and an annual commemoration ceremony was begun which continues to be held by the Hilltop Historical Society.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2012 LCV Cities Tour” in Columbus, Ohio, on July 9-12 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Time Warner Cable local affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. The history segments air on American History TV (AHTV) on C-SPAN3 and the literary events/non-fiction author segments air on BookTV on C-SPAN2. close
