C. 1860s

Content Description: 

Colonel Daniel Cameron, Jr. organized the "Scotch Regiment," officially known as the 65th Regiment Illinois Infantry Volunteers, at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Illinois, in the spring of 1862. Their uniforms, while not as colorful as the Garibaldi Guars, reflected the Scottish Highlander heritage of the troops. As a result of the surrender terms at Harpers Ferry, the 65th Illinois faced the tragic irony of imprisonment at the scene of their enlistment, Camp Douglas.
