WW II and POW Camps

 

Powell PW Camp... Located a short distance south of Powell, a small community about three miles east of Lebanon and about eight miles southwest of Madill, this camp was originally a branch of the Madill Provisional Internment Camp Headquarters, and later became a branch of the Camp Howze PW camp.  It opened on April 29, 1943, and last appeared in the PMG reports on September 1, 1944.  It had a capacity of 600 and was usually kept full.  The PWs cleared trees and brush from the bed of Lake Texoma which was just being completed.
