ABOUT US

Mission Statement

The Friends of Elmira Civil War Prison Camp is a non-profit 503c based in Elmira, New York.

Mission

It is the mission of the Friends of the Elmira Civil War Prison Camp to protect and preserve the history of the Civil War in Elmira, Chemung County and surrounding areas and to educate the public about that history.

Project Vision

The Friends of the Elmira Civil War Prison Camp will be the primary resource for history, education and preservation of the Civil War experience for Elmira, Chemung County and the surrounding areas. This will include working cooperatively with other local groups, as well as building relationships with relevant organizations nationally.

The current project is the reconstruction of an original camp building which will be located on the grounds of the original Barracks #3, that served as both a Union training and later prisoner of war camp. The purpose of the building’s role is unknown at this time. Based on its structure, it was most probably a general purpose or utility building.

With reconstruction underway, as it currently stands, fundraising is still necessary to ensure completion of the project. Our Goal is to have the Original Camp Building Reconstructed in 2016.

DONATE

Thank you for considering a donation. Your donation will go to keep this all volunteer organization operating.
