First State Fairgrounds to Camp SullivanMilitary Park began its existence in the 1820s as a "Military Reservation" where the state militia occasionally trained. In 1852 the first Indiana State Fair was held on the grounds, and other state fairs occurred there over the next eight years. In 1861 the fairgrounds became a military camp, as the 13th Indiana Regiment of Col. Jeremiah Sullivan of Madison and others trained there. As Camp Sullivan, the grounds continued to be used as a military camp for the rest of the war.
