Flowers at Camp Robinson in Indianapolis

The ground at a small urban park on the near Westside of Indianapolis on the Civil War site of Camp Robinson is covered in spring flowers.

I grew up not far from here and never knew that the area just south of Coffin Golf Course in Indianapolis, along the west bank of the White River, on the corner of Cold Spring Road and Lafayette Road, was the site of Camp Robinson, a Civil War training camp. The plaque says that the regiment that trained here were the first from Indiana to go to the front.
