Camp Jackson Today

(also known as "Lindell's Grove")

Very little open ground remains where troops once drilled on the site of Camp Jackson. The above image was taken in February 2003 of the grounds of Frost campus of St. Louis University. Frost campus was named for Gen. Daniel M. Frost, Commander of the Missouri Volunteer Militia that was captured by Federal forces on May 10, 1861. Photo by Scott K. Williams
