Info

This is the eleventh program in a 12-part series, "Illinois and the Civil War," developed to commemorate Illinois' 200 years of statehood. It is sponsored by the Civil War Roundtables of Springfield and Macoupin County, and is an officially endorsed event of the Illinois Bicentennial..

Following a lecture on flag symbolism at Books On The Square, an optional auto caravan will travel to Camp Lincoln for a rare opportunity to see Illinois' historical treasure of military flags, most from the Civil War. Bill Lear, curator at the Illinois Military History Museum at Camp Lincoln, will be our guide on this adventure of viewing these important artifacts and explaining how they are preserved and restored.
