      RESPONSE:

      Camp Bull - it largely held the prisoners from the Battle of Lake Erie

      After the Battle of Moraviantown, it was far too small and a new camp was created at Newport Kentucky (across from Cincinnati)for the infantry

      Think the naval prisoners remained at Camp Bull

      Cheers!
