Info

This is the fifth in a series of programs, "Illinois in the Civil War," developed by the Civil War Roundtables of Springfield and Macoupin County, and is an officially endorsed event of the Illinois Bicentennial.

Historian John Alexander will help us follow the footsteps of Colonel Ulysses S. Grant and his 21st Illinois Volunteer Infantry as they left Springfield and began the march toward Missouri in July of 1861. Leaving Camp Yates at the current site of Dubois school in Springfield, Grant's men headed west on the state road toward Riddle Hill, Berlin, Exeter and Naples, where their orders were changed. 

The program provides an overview of Grant's March in a 45-minute presentation held at Books On The Square. An optional car caravan will then travel along the route to the new soldiers' first camp site near Riddle Hill.
