March 28 ~ July 28, 1862

Major General E. Kirby Smith of the Confederate Army established Camp Van Dorn 1 1/2 to 2 miles west of Knoxville Depot, near the banks of a little stream, Third Creek. It operated from March 28 through July 28, 1862. Most Georgia Confederate Infantry regiments, including the 37th, 39th, 40th, and 52nd from Camp McDonald at "Big Shanty", Georgia were here. Diseases decimated the ranks of the Ga. 40th and 52nd, killing 137. Mot of these Confederate dead were buried in Bethel Cemetery here in Knoxville.
