Shadows of Blue and Gray

Posted by wlpo on October 14, 2012

See and hear a recreation of the Civil War era today north of I-80 at Princeton. It’s Day 2 of the “Shadows of the Blue and Gray” annual festival in “City-County Park”. Actors will recreate the roles of some key players in the Civil War and music from Bob Welch and the 33rd Illinois Volunteer Regimental Band. Battle reenactment and medical scenarios after the battle, plus the “Windy City Wizard” – an expert in con games and fire eating. A Baked Goods auction is planned along with story tellers. City County park is slightly better than a half mile north of I-80.
