Midway Village Museum is seeking stories about the Army cantonment Camp Grant that operated just south of Rockford during both World Wars. The camp was also used by the Illinois National Guard and the Civilian Conservation Corps.
How was your family impacted by Camp Grant? Perhaps a relative trained there, or was a civilian employee at the camp. Maybe your grandparents supplied the camp with food and goods, or your mother attended USO dances.
Thank you for sharing your stories from Midway Village Museum's Collections Department!
Please note: Submission of this form allows Midway Village Museum to use your story at their discretion, but does not guarantee your information will be part of future exhibits.
