If you watch the news, you know California is a very dry, desert state and we have wildfires every year. Fire season usually starts in mid-summer and last until the first winter snow in the mountains. So, JULY-DEC may be extreme no-fire or restricted campfire times. Each year and every forest is different, depending on the rainfall, so it's best to check with the local rangers on camp fire rules and precautions.

You can obtain a free camp fire permit at the ranger station - and camp for free, outside a developed campground. Must haves: dirt clearing 10' around campfire, water, bucket, shovel & your fire permit. Most regular campgrounds allow camp fires all year long, so this would be the safest bet if you are a novice camper.

Happy Camping!

What was the purpose of Theresienstadt that set it apart from other camps?

Part of Theresienstadt was an 'ordinary' concentration camp and a Gestapo prison (mainly for Czechs), and another part was a transit camp for 'prominent' German Jews. It was for a time a 'model concentration camp' that Germany could should off to the Red Cross. To some extent, the Jews there were allowed to organize their own lives. However, the grim reality was that prisoners were regularly sent by train to Auschwitz.

What did the confederate soldiers do?

When not engaged in training, drills, battle, or marching to battle, Confederate soldiers would have off-duty time in camp. This leisure time would be spent playing cards, instruments, singing, dancing, and entertaining themselves. They would also be writing letters home to family and friends, keeping war journals about battles and camp life, and even visiting the nearest town on occasion if the camp commander allowed it.
