A question for those with Civil War knowledge

5 posts in this topic

I have found my great-great grandfather's compiled service record from the Civil War.  He was a private with the Maryland 5th Regiment (Company C), and a couple of the items in the record refer to a 'Camp Tyler' (from which, he apparently went AWOL for a few days in 1863 - bad, bad great-great grandpappy).  Can anyone tell me where this Camp Tyler may have been?  The only reference I can find to a camp Tyler is a POW camp in Texas.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks!  I think it's probably the last one.  That looks like it was in Baltimore County.  And interestingly, that article is dated September 12, 1863.  The record indicating that GGGP was "Sent to Camp Tyler.  This man found in street with altered pass" is dated September 11, 1863.

I love the Gettysburg area along with Caledonia state park. I know some historians that have vast knowledge of the civil war very interesting.
