There are three organizations involved with the CCCCCC.
The SCV Camp 1535
The Martha Reid 19 Chapter of the UDC
The Hilltop Historical Society aka HHS
The HHS are made up of folks who live around Camp Chase currently and have a separate Memorial for the Confederate dead after the SCV Camp 1535 does about a week after ours.
Because of our common goals both the HHS and SCV Camp names will be on the coin.
The Martha Reid Chapter has sent representatives to the Camp Chase Memorials in the past all the way from Florida.
The SCV Camp 1535 will receive 125 coins as will the HHS. The Martha Reid Chapter will receive 100 coins.
Each organization may do what ever they deem fit as these coins are a gift to them from me.
I would imagine that some organizations if not all will use the coins as a money making project for their organizations.
But in the same respect I wanted to share them with folks on this board whom I have dealt with should they desire to have one.
I'd like to keep this as low profile as I can because I don't want to take away other organizations efforts to sell the coins.
There are three names on the back of the coin who have contributed to the Camp Chase Memorials.
William H. Knauss who was a private in the 2nd Jersey Infantry and wounded at Fredericksburg, Virginia. He would later carry the honorary title of Colonel. He would start the Camp Chase Memorial starting in 1895 I believe.
Bennett Henderson Young who was taken POW on Morgan's Ohio Raid and spent time at Camp Chase. He would later be transferred to Camp Douglas and escape up into Canada. He would lead Confederates out of Canada to capture the town of Saint Albans, Vermont in October 1864. He would also be the UCV Commander about 1913. He was a featured guest speaker at the Camp Chase Memorials for 3 separate years and would speak of the Confederates miseries at Camp Chase and heard some calling for their mothers before they died.
Louisiana R. Briggs during the war her parents sent her to live with relatives in Columbus, Ohio as she was living in Missouri. Every year shortly after the war someone was cleaning the Chase graveyard and leaving flowers. No one knew who this person was because she had her face covered and sometimes wore a disguise. The reason why she did this was her husband Mr. Briggs was a Columbus Commissioner and could lose his job if she was found out. In 1913 Mr. Briggs was killed in an auto accident in Columbus. Then Louisiana no longer kept her secret it was her all of those years. Her tombstone was destroyed by vandals at the Green Lawn Cemetery not too long ago. She died at age 101 in 1950. She would also raise her grandson who was James Cheney a WWII fighter pilot who was shot down over Nazi Germany in 1944 and held as a POW. She would live to see his return home.
So three appropriate names on the back of the coin in my opinion.
