Camp Boone - TN heritage fund drive


We have 90 days in which to raise funds for a proper archaeological survey of Camp Boone, Montgomery County, TN - and site of the training camp for tke 2nd, 3rd, part of the 4th KY Infantry and Byrne's/Cobb's KY Battery. This was the genesis of the famous Orphan Brigade.

The site is under development threat and we need to raise $10,000 quickly to fund the survey so we can map the site. There is a good possibility of some acreage being saved for a historical park.

If you value our Civil War heritage please send any donations for this survey to:

Arts & Heritage Development Council - Camp Boone Fund
PO Box 555,
Clarksville, TN 37041

Please make sure this is on the envelope so it gets to the right place.

The Arts & Heritage Council is a 501c3 status entity. Any leftover funds will go to the intepretation of the site.

We need your help folks - please send what you can.
