Northwest Ohio is home to the only Union Army Civil War prison specifically designed to house captured Confederate officers. Johnson's Island Civil War Prison continues to reveal tantalizing details about the war and the men who fought and died. This exhibit focuses on additional information learned through archaeological evidence discovered since the 1965 publication of "Rebels on Lake Erie," the seminal history of the prison written by Charles E. Frohman. Numerous artifacts recovered from the site in recent years are on display.
