A special project is underway in Calhoun to mark the grave sites of 140 Union Soldiers who were buried at Camp Calhoun Cemetery. The cemetery is located just 1 block north of a private residence that was once the headquarters of Maj. General Thomas L. Crittenden. Crittenden's Army of the Ohio with a size of somewhat between 12,000 and 20,000 had a major impact at both the Battle at Fort Donelson and was in a major skirmish just prior to the Battle of Perryville that may have played a major role in the outcome of that particular battle. For more on this subject, see the research document by Bill Mulligan, a Civil War historian from Murray State University or take the Battle of Sacramento Driving Tour or the McLean County Driving Tour. Mr. Mulligan also has further information on the McLean County Driving Tour - click here.
