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.
