Not Just Football at Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium-- Part 1

From Wikipedia. //// I must admit that I always thought Camp Randall was a strange name for a major college football stadium and I found out there was a Civil War-related reason for it. //// Built in 1914 and seats 80,321 and the oldest Big 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 stadium. It is the 5th biggest in the conference and 41st in the world. //// When full for a home game, it becomes the 5th largest city in Wisconsin. //// It was built on the former grounds of the Civil War Camp Randall and named for Governor Alexander Randall, who later became the U.S. Postmaster General. Many of Wisconsin's volunteers trained here. //// --Old Secesh
