Some More on Wisconsin's Camp Randall-- Part 2

After the war, Camp Randall again became the home of the state fairgrounds. In 1893, it was acquired by the university as an athletic field. In 1911, a section of it was set aside and became the Camp Randall Memorial Park with a memorial arch completed in 1912 to honor Wisconsin's Civil War soldiers. //// The camp was temporarily reactivated during World War I for troops going overseas, many of them former university students. //// --Old Secesh
