Happy New Year: 2015 and 1865

Happy New Year!

As we ring in the New Year of 2015, we also wrap-up our five year program “Warrenville & The American Civil War.”

On Sunday, January 25th at 2:00 p.m., at the Warrenville Public Library, the  Historical Society will host “1865 in 48  Minutes,” detailing the final year of the Civil War, highlighting local and national events month-by-month.   Aided by a visual presentation, presenters will detail life in Warrenville and the events facing our country during the War and immediately after its end.
