The 26th Galesburg Heritage Days

Galesburg Heritage Days- Military

We follow scripted battle scenarios for both Saturday and Sunday. Providing a time frame and narrated battles add to the educational authenticity of the event. To insure that there is no confusion, Galesburg Heritage Days will gladly provide a cash bounty to each mounted Cavalry, powder to each rifleman/pistol for small arms, powder for full scale cannons. We provide breakfast Sunday morning at Carlson's kitchen.  I often scrounge up some musket caps and pass them to Commanders,  but that ain't part of the amenities gig....The rest is up to ya'll pards...Sergt.
