Walking Tour Stop 4Although difficult to see because of the vegetation at the cemetery fence, the ground falls off sharply just outside the fence. The same creek that you crossed to get to the cemetery passes along this back side of the cemetery. The ground rises on the other side and becomes high again. On this high ground, approximately 50 yards in front of you is where Camp Tracy was located. the upper camp of Camp Moore. This was an additional camping area when Camp Moore was loaded with troops, probably in excess of 3000. It was named for General Elisha Tracy, the militia commander of Camp Moore. Continuing to the east from this point for ¼ mile will put you at the Tangipahoa River. the eastern boundary of Camp Moore. The men used the Tangipahoa River and Beaver Creek for drinking water, bathing and recreation. Proceed to Marker No. 5.
