McHenry County Civil War Round Table Meeting Tonight: "Blackhawk War Veterans in the Civil War"

Tonight at 7 p.m., the McHenry County (Illinois) Civil War Round Table will meet at the Woodstock Public Library and have a presentation by Jerry Allen on "Blackhawk War Veterans in the Civil War."    The Blackhawk War was a short one, fought in 1832.

Abraham Lincoln was in it.  Others who fought 29 years later were also in it.  

I would much have liked to have been at it, but there is something about a game being played this afternoon which will keep me away from it.

Also, the Discussion Group meets at Panera Bread in Crystal Lake from 10 to noon.  The topic will be "Spying and Espionage During the Civil War."
