Civil War history to come alive this weekend Photo by Steve Spoden
Union and Confederate soldiers will meet again in battle during the Lombard Historical Society’s sixth annual Civil War Reenactment in Lombard’s Four Seasons park Saturday, July 23, and Sunday, July 24, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Stanford’s Battery, which reenacts a Confederate battery unit from Mississippi, is the host unit for the event. Members of the battery are pictured last week on the front lawn of the Sheldon Peck Homestead. On both days, a skirmish will be held at 11:30 a.m. while a main battle will be fought at 2:30 p.m. Visitors will be able to witness military campsite activity, watch drills and demonstrations, listen to Civil War-era music and more.
