Camp Clinton POW Camp, Clinton- Mississippi Mondays October 28, 2019

I saw this on the Mississippi Encyclopedia page –, but I had seen it mentioned several times before as I researched POW camps in Mississippi. I want to thank Mike Allard of MDAH for making the entry. I previously posted about him – MDAH – Mississippi Mondays December 31, 2018 and Mississippians at Pearl Harbor – Mississippi Department of Archives and History.

I will reference this post down the road as it includes a reference to an abandoned item: It’s a pretty impressive abandoned item and a shame that nobody is trying to save it.

Official website: No official website, but the Clinton Visitor Center does have some displays –

    Sorry, I don’t have the time to visit all the links, but I visited a few and found them very interesting – and sorry to see history left to go to the weeds. I’ll be back to visit more. Thank you.
