See Christmas as it was during the Civil War
Sugar Groveâ€”Can you imagine what Christmas was like during the Civil War? Now is your opportunity to find out â€œfirst hand.â€
Join the Sugar Grove Library staff at 125 Municipal Drive, Sugar Grove, at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 12, in the Large Meeting Room for a Civil War Christmas. Special guests will be Colonel Basil Duke and his wife, Henretta Morgan Duke, as portrayed by Richard and Valarie Hargreaves.
The two re-enactors will be at the library to portray these historical figures in a program for adults and children ages 10 and up. Featured presentations will be about home life, living conditions, clothing and customs during the Civil War at Christmas time.
Admission to the Civil War Christmas program is free, although registration is recommended. For information or to register, visit www.sugargrove. lib.il.us or call (630) 466-4686. This program is funded by the Sugar Grove Library Friends.
