Camp Olden Civil War Round Table & Museum, Inc. was founded in 1992 and is an organization of people brought together by our common interest in the American Civil War. Our interests range from the casual to the obsessive and we attempt to appeal to all of our members.
The Round Table is named for Camp Olden an 1861 training camp located in Hamilton Township, New Jersey. The camp bore the name of Charles Olden, then governor of New Jersey. Many of the troops raised in New Jersey for that year were instructed at Camp Olden.
The main purpose of our organization is education. In our bylaws we state we will "foster and support a better understanding of the Civil War era". We attempt to accomplish this in many ways including Living History, preservation projects, trips, tours, lectures and events.
Camp Olden Civil War Round Table & Museum, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Educational Institution.
