Civil War Saturday: Meet the Ladies' Soldiers' Aid Society
Illinois Historic Preservation Agency and the Springfield Soldiers' Aid Society
Join us for this fun, family-friendly program hosted by the Springfield Soldiers' Aid Society. Volunteers in historic attire will help those attending learn about the women who worked in the Old State Capitol during the Civil War and experience history by trying crafts that were popular in that era. All supplies are provided.
Rather than scheduled presentations, participants are encouraged to arrive at any time during the scheduled event to visit with volunteers and try the activities.
The program is free and open to the public; donations accepted.
