Camp McClellan Marker
Many newly formed Iowa Regiments trained here before heading south on the Mississippi River. As mentioned on the marker, Sioux Indians captured in the 1862 uprising in Minnesota and the Dakota Territory were held here as prisoners. Thanks to John Sachs for informing me of this historical marker. This is located in Lindsay Park on East 11th Street overlooking the River. It is next to the Village of East Davenport. The marker is by the bushes and water fountain near the street. Photos taken 3/6/09.
