One of the Camp's most notable achievements involved facing down feared Confederate raider, John Hunt Morgan. The camp also included a small prisoner of war camp.

In the early part of the war, many paroled men would simply go home, or elsewhere, not to be found when time came for the exchange. Originally intended as a -½camp of instruction,-+ a camp for paroled prisoners was established near Annapolis, Maryland, in the summer of 1862 and came to be known as Camp Parole. The camp was gradually transformed into a way station for paroled men and exchanged prisoners moving to their homes or to other camps. Many remained as hospital patients until they died or were able to travel. Camp Parole was vacated by July 18, 1865. (Image 1) (Image 2)
