Camp Croft Outside Spartanburg, SC During World War II

Again, I got on the Internet yesterday and found a lot of interesting photos of Camp Croft during World War II. It was a training camp named in honor of Major General Edward Croft, a South Carolinian who had served with distinction as an officer in WWI. Activated January 10, 1941. The Camp also served as a prisoner of war (POW) camp. Approximately 250 German POWs were interned at Croft. A lot of it was made into a state park (7,000 acres) when the camp closed down in 1946 or 1947.

Here is an aerial view.
