On Saturday, May 25 during the St. Charles Fine Arts Show, drop by the St. Charles History Museum to meet with Civil War reenactors who will provide information on the 8th Illinois Cavalry and St. Charles’ connections to the Civil War.

The 8th Illinois Cavalry was one of the most well-known troops in the Civil War, and held their training grounds in St. Charles at the site of what is present-day Langum Park.

This program is free and registration is not required. The reenactors will be at the museum during our regular hours.
