CAMP MCMILLAN. Camp McMillan, at Hall's Spring at the head of Richland Creek in San Saba County, was established by James M. Norris on March 26, 1862, as a ranger station for the Frontier Regiment. Under command of Capt. N. D. McMillan, scouts served at the camp until the consolidation of the regiment in March 1864.
