Civil War program in Grayslake:


Grayslake Heritage Center and Museum Executive Director Dave Oberg will present "The Brothers' War" at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 21. The program, developed in partnership with Grayslake Historical Society volunteers, will feature stories and images of area residents who served during the Civil War. Many of the farmers and laborers who lived on the land that would become Grayslake served together during the war in units, such as the 96th Illinois Volunteer Infantry and the 17th Illinois Cavalry. Oberg will also share humorous and poignant songs that soldiers would have sung. There is a suggested donation of $3 for adults and $1 for children, with proceeds supporting future museum programs, exhibitions and initiatives. The museum is at 164 Hawley St. in Grayslake. For information, check grayslakeheritagecenter.com or contact Oberg at (847) 543-1745.
