    Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin

    I live in the NW Chicago Burbs and am interested in finding relics with my new MD. I understand that there were a few army camps in Illinois in the early 1860's. One was in Rockford and one on the Fox River near St. Charles. I've also heard that there may have been a Japanese internment camp in Barrington during WWII. Does anyone have any further info on these sites or perhaps any others in the area you wouldn't mind sharing with me so that I can get my feet wet!

    Did you need a permit to detect in the park?
