Lots of Civil War Stuff Going On in the Northeastern Illinois Area
Several announcements were made at Tuesday's (September 8, 2015) meeting of the McHenry County Civil War Round Table at Woodstock, Illinois, concerning things going on concerning our favorite subject.
There will be a trip to the Kenosha (Wis.) Civil War museum for its Lunchbox Talk about the Lincoln family after Ford's theatre.
On September 19th, there will be a Woodstock Cemetery Walk starting at 10 a.m. The same day there will be the huge Civil War Show in Wheaton.
The MCCWRT is happy to announce that there more Union soldier markers have been placed in Coral Cemetery. There are now 13 that have been placed by the Round table at the Cemetery. These ar to replace damaged or non-existing ones.
We will be starting meetings at the Woodstock Library at 7 p.m. instead of 7:30 as the library closes at 9 and sometimes the presentations run long.
Next month's presentation will be on Blackhawk War veterans who also fought in the Civil War.
The September discussion group meets at Panera Bread in Crystal lake and the topic will be the Not So Solid South. Parts of the Confederacy who weren't so Confederate.
Lots Going On. --Old Secesh
