TIFFIN — David Bush will discuss “Johnsons Island Civil War Prison,” including recent anthropological digs at the prison site on Johnsons Island in Lake Erie during Sunday’s meeting of the Johnsons Island Civil War Roundtable.

Many Confederate officers were housed in the barracks during the Civil War, and several attempts were made to free the prisoners from this camp. Artifacts such as buttons have been uncovered there.

The lecture begins at 4 p.m. at T.J. Willie’s of Tiffin. Attendees may meet with Bush at dinner starting at 5.
