BROWN—In stating that the Camp at Union City was so named, we omitted to state
that it was in compliment of Hon. Milton Brown, in honor of his successful
completion and management of the Mobile and Ohio Ra ilroad, upon the line of which
the great improvement that camp is situated, and which great highway has become
so important and valuable an arm of public service. The compliment was worthily bestowed upon an
estimable and able gentleman.
