January 10th, 2016 -  It's a new year and a new event for the Delavan Civil War Days.  The 2016
event is heading into its 5th annual year!  What an amazing accomplishment!  For 2016 the event will
be head the weekend of April 30 & May 1.  This promised to be our biggest year to date!  We will
have more soldiers representing both sides than ever before.  There will be more demonstations, and
speakers than we have had in years past as well.  Last year due to weather we were unable to bring
in the 1860's baseball  teams due to weather, but they we finally be apart of the event this year!  We
are bringing back the Ladies Tea and Fashion Show, as well as the Phrenologist and Period Tintype
Photographer!  We will continue to bring President Lincoln, General's Grant, Lee, Custer as well as
Brian "Fox" Ellis to help us learn first hand about conflicts within the Civil War.  Saturday Night we will
continue our Period Ball, in which all public is invited to participate.  It will feature the 33rd Band from
Normal, Illinois.  Stay Tunes to upcoming exciting news for our 2016 event!
