I know this is a bit of a late notice but tomorrow night at the IL State Military Museum in Springfield is their Christmas at the Front event. So if you are in the Springfield area you should check it out. It runs from 1800 to 2100. Dr. Chris McDonald and will be discussing the Christmas Truce of 1914. Plus they will be doing a tour of the trench and some other fun things. Bring out the family and check it out.
Thanks,
Mike

I have heard that the place is great. I have been busy every time they have an event so I promised myself and the guest speaker that I would attend. Hopefully they allow photos as I would put together a thread on here to help get it some exposure. I wonder if any of the forum members are reenactors that help with the events?
