Camp Rusk

Hello all!

I'm seeking any information about Camp Rusk located in Ben Franklin Texas.

Information I have identifies it as a training camp under Sam Bell Maxey. Unit was eventually moved to Tennessee and camp was abandoned.

A historical marker was placed at the site but was reported missing in 2009 and has never been replaced.

Can anyone provide a more accurate location of the former camp?

I'm also interested in any other geographically related installations (Delta, Fannin, Lamar counties) if you have knowledge to share!
