It has been a busy three days for me as far as Civil War events are concerned. And, that is considering that I am all the way up here in Illinois, by the Wisconsin line and about 30 miles west of Lake Michigan.
Sunday, I attended the Civil War Days re-enactment in Wauconda, Illinois, and saw some interesting presentations by people playing the roles of Abraham Lincoln and Sojourner Truth. And then I saw the second day of the Battle of Shiloh (which didn't go so well for our boys in gray, you know).
I sat at the Camp Douglas Sons of Confederate Veterans tent and had conversation with members of the 154th Tennessee Re-enactors.
Today I am going to Woodstock, Illinois, for the monthly meeting of the McHenry County Civil War Round Table at the Woodstock Library. Tonight's topic will be Show and Tell. Members will bring items and talk about them, but we have been seriously fore-warned not to bring any weapons.
The meeting starts at 7 in the downstairs meeting room.
Before the meeting, a bunch of us will get together for dinner at Three Brothers Restuarant on Illinois Highway 47.
