    CW Camp Spindletop

    Hi from Beaumont Tx area. Iím looking for info on the location of Confederate camp spindletop. I havenít been able to find any maps and the info I have found is contradictory. I know the general area but not sure of the exact location. Itís probably has been hunted over pretty well or owned by chemical plants, but I am interested because my great great something grandfather was a doctor there in the Confederacy(Mansfield). All of the local libraries are closed for a while so thatís a no go. Any location info is appreciated. Thanks

    LandSeig, I have access to large tract of west Spindletop land. Also a treasure hunter. Too bad W.T. Block isn't here to direct us or other old timers. My grandfather delivered the Perricone quadruplets who lived in south Beaumont near Spindletop at the time. Let's connect.

    Hey third eye, sorry for the delay i just saw the response to my thread. I think I saw something about them training out on the prairie to the west, so that sounds like it could be a good area.. We should get together sometime, I’m new to the whole forum thing so not sure how I should post contact info if your interested.

    Thanks creskol for the coordinates, there is no telling the history that is buried around here that has been long forgotten. That is really neat that Dick Dowling is you grandfather, we were down at Sabine pass not to long ago at the battle site and the bravery of those men is absolutely awe inspiring. There are lot of lessons we could learn from that war that is no longer being taught.
