Details

In 2016, archaeologists from the Ohio Department of Transportation and Lawhon & Associates conducted excavations in the former Quartermaster's Section of Ohio's World War I training camp, Camp Sherman, near Chillicothe. They compared the documentary record and assumptions about how camps were set up with what the archaeological record has to tell us about life in the camp. Speaker Andrew Sewell  is senior historian/principal investigator with Lawhon & Associates.

 

Included with museum admission.
