Description: Views of Camp Bushnell, a military camp in Columbus, Ohio, where companies of the Ohio National Guard assembled during the Spanish-American War. Two smaller photographs show officers in camp, accompanied by a label identifying the camp and a roster of the Ohio National Guard units that were present, while the panoramic photograph shows an elevated view of the camp. Camp Bushnell was established in Columbus as a training camp for Ohio National Guard troops that volunteered for federal service for the Spanish-American War. Columbus Bullet Park, in the present day suburb of Bexley, was renamed Camp Bushnell in honor of Ohio governor Asa Bushnell. The camp was established April 28, 1898, and abandoned May 29, 1898.
