Camp Sadler (2) (1898-1898) - A temporary Spanish American War Training Camp established in June 1898 near the now Independent Carson City, Nevada, and named Camp Sadler (2) after the acting governor of Nevada, Reinhold Sadler. Abandoned in 1898.


A temporary Spanish American War Training Camp that was established in June 1898 at the racetrack, east of the capital building, at the southeast edge of Carson City. The track was located at the present-day intersection of East King Street and Roop Street.

The site was reportedly crowded, had no shade and the racetrack’s owner wanted the camp moved so the track could be prepared for the fall racing season.

In mid-August of 1898, the troops were moved to Treadway Park to the northwest of Carson City. This second camp was named Camp Clark (1) after Captain Charles Edgar Clark of the battleship U.S.S. Oregon in the naval battle of Santiago Bay.

The troops were mustered out of the service by late October 1898.
