Commemorating the American Civil War in Illinois

The 150th anniversary of the American Civil War is being commemorated across the United States.

The Illinois Civil War Sesquicentennial Website has been created to provide information on events commemorating the American Civil War in Illinois, as well as resources on Illinois’s involvement in the American Civil War. The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Chicago History Museum, Old State Capitol State Historic Site, and DuPage County Historical Museum will all be presenting exhibits.

NIU students interested in the American Civil War may find information on local and regional conferences and other events relating to the Civil War on the Sesquicentennial Website.
