If you planned to attend the “Letters of the Civil War” performance at the Glen Ellyn Historical Society on Jan. 27, but the weather or other things kept you from attending, you have another chance to see the program.
The Glen Ellyn Historical Society cancelled the program and rescheduled it due to the inclement weather. The event is now set for Feb. 3 at 2 p.m.
"Letters of the Civil War," is a 60-minute performance with period attired Civil War actors dramatically interpreting more than 30 original letters from the war. The performance also include a music accompaniment, period photographs and historical reenactment video footage.
"The men, women and children of the Blue and Gray are given voice from their words written during the war," according to the historical interpreters, Rebecca Tulloch and Phil Lauricella.
Tulloch and Lauricella have 35 years of performing historical programs in schools, libraries, museums and other venues through out the Midwest, according to the historical society.
The program is presented at the Glen Ellyn History Center, 800 N. Main St. Tickets are available at Stacy's Corners Store and at the door on the afternoon of the program. Ticket price is $10 for members of the GEHS, $12 for non-members and $5 for students under 18 years of age. Call 630-469-1867 for information and check on the GEHS website.
