Rooney Lee was also at Camp Floyd, with his two pards from college. And least we forget BG John C. Robinson, USA (Worshipful Master Rocky Mountain #205-Camp Floyd) the first day at Gettysburg, and seeing the last Senior Warden of that lodge on the opposing side, Brother Heth.

By all menas do not forget Robinson. He is one of the seven participanst in the Utah Expedition that later received the Medal of Honor either in the Civil War or the Indian Wars.

No one has been forgotten. Like I said above this is just a list of SOME of the famous people at Camp Floyd. We are not attempting to make a full list. Just trying to get the word out about how Camp Floyd is tied to some important figures in history.
