Thanks to our Sponsors, This event is free for all ages!

April 4th, 2015 -  This year we will be hosting 2 battles on Saturday and 1 Battle on Sunday.  In
addition to the battle scenarios, we will be doing a representation of the surrender of General Lee to
General Grant.  The surrender will take place at the small amphitheater in the park.  We have also
added a Vintage 1850's baseball tournament which will take place in the park on Saturday.  The
schedule will be determined as we confirm speakers, demonstrators and reenactors.  Stay Tuned!  
The Excitement is Building!
If you are interested in becoming a reenactor or want to try reenacting check out our unit host,
The 9th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry, Co. B.  They are based out of Central Illinois and do not require equipment or
experience to try it out.
Ever wonder what it's like to participate in a reenactment?  Want to feel, smell, see and hear what
it was like to live 150 years ago?
