The Highland Park Historical Society invites the community to step back in time together on June 1, 2013 from 11:00am – 4:00pm to observe the Civil War Sesquicentennial. As part of the Annual Stupey Cabin Picnic & Fundraiser, Civil War re-enactors will encamp on the lawn in front of the Francis Stupey Cabin located in Laurel Park, on St. Johns Avenue between the Highland Park Library and City Hall. No rain date is planned. The 10th Illinois Regiment will portray soldiers in a Union military camp in 1863. Military firings using black powder muskets will occur throughout the day.
