Historical society prepares for annual Civil War encampment
LOMBARD – History comes to life in Lombard during the weekend of July 27, when Four Seasons Park is transformed into war camp for Confederate and Union soldiers during the third annual Sweet's Civil War Encampment hosted by the Lombard Historical Society.
Throughout the weekend, reenactors will create an 1863 military campsite, perform military drills and demonstrations and participate in a reenacted skirmish between the Confederate and Union sides.
Two local reenactment groups are co-hosting the event. Stanford's Battery interprets a Confederate battery unit from Mississippi, and they have been participating in reenactment events for many years. The unit owns several cannons that they bring to events.
