Prison Camps in Crew Lake?

A local researcher and historian recently pointed out to me that he had come across several interesting articles that indicated that, during the late 1800's, a prison camp was located in the area of Crew Lake, in Richland Parish. After quizzing several locals, none of us knew much about the history of this.  Will be interesting to learn more.  Here are some articles and posts that describe the terrible scene!
